Hi,
How would I get all dates above that are  NOT BETWEEN (select date1, date2 from test_table)

select dt from (select trunc (sysdate,'Y')+rownum-1 dt from dual connect by level <=366) where trunc(dt,'Y')=trunc(sysdate,'Y') AND NOT BETWEEN (select date1, date2 from test_table)


if select date1, date2 from test_table returned 3 rows

dt NOT BETWEEN '07-JUL-2006'  AND  '13-JUL-2006'
dt NOT BETWEEN '16-JUL-2006'  AND  '18-JUL-2006'
dt NOT BETWEEN '26-JUL-2006'  AND  '30-JUL-2006'

if 100 rows etc..

Thanks, Bill

select * from(
select dt from (select trunc (sysdate,'Y')+rownum-1 dt
from dual connect by level <=366)
where trunc(dt,'Y')=trunc(sysdate,'Y') )
where dt<(select min(date1) from test_table)
and dt>(select max(date2) from test_table);

No.. I don't think that will do it.


where dt<(select min(date1) from test_table)
and dt>(select max(date2) from test_table);

Min would be '07-JUL-2006'
Max would be '30-JUL-2006'

That would exclude  '14-JUL-2006', '15-JUL-2006',
         and  '19-JUL-2006' through  '25-JUL-2006'

I've got it...

select dt from (select trunc (sysdate,'Y')+rownum-1 dt from dual connect by level <=366) where trunc(dt,'Y')=trunc(sysdate,'Y') AND dt NOT IN (select n.dt from test_table tt,
(select trunc (sysdate,'Y')+rownum-1 dt from dual connect by level <=366) n
where trunc(n.dt,'Y')=trunc(sysdate,'Y') AND n.dt <= tt.date2 and tt.date1 <= n.dt )

Thanks for the help....

OK,

How do I check the intersection of two sets?

SET 1 - 1,3,5,7,9,11,15,16,21,31,41
SET 2 - 2,4,7,11,12,13,16,23,44,55

Intersection is 7, 11, 16

select num from test_table
where this makes SET 1

select num from test_table
where this makes SET 2

actonwang,

You are the one that gave me
(select trunc (sysdate,'Y')+rownum-1 dt from dual connect by level <=366) n

You'll understand the full tamale...

SET 1
select n.dt from test_table tt,
(select trunc (sysdate,'Y')+rownum-1 dt from dual connect by level <=366) n
where trunc(n.dt,'Y')=trunc(sysdate,'Y')
AND n.dt <= tt.date2 and tt.date1 <= n.dt

SET 2
 (select n.dt "Desired Dates" from
(select trunc (sysdate,'Y')+rownum-1 dt from dual connect by level <=366) n
where trunc(n.dt,'Y')=trunc(sysdate,'Y')
AND n.dt <= '06-JUL-06' and '01-JUL-06' <= n.dt )

I need to know is there ANY in SET 1 that are in SET 2 - Yes or No

I don't care at present which are in the other.. just if there is any that match....

Thanks, Bill :>)

just do the intersect..

select n.dt from test_table tt,
(select trunc (sysdate,'Y')+rownum-1 dt from dual connect by level <=366) n
where trunc(n.dt,'Y')=trunc(sysdate,'Y')
AND n.dt <= tt.date2 and tt.date1 <= n.dt
INTERSECT
(select n.dt "Desired Dates" from
(select trunc (sysdate,'Y')+rownum-1 dt from dual connect by level <=366) n
where trunc(n.dt,'Y')=trunc(sysdate,'Y')
AND n.dt <= '06-JUL-06' and '01-JUL-06' <= n.dt )


Example
--------------

create table test_table1 (num number);
create table test_table2 (num number);

insert into test_table1 values(1);
insert into test_table1 values(3);
insert into test_table1 values(5);
insert into test_table1 values(7);

insert into test_table2 values(1);
insert into test_table2 values(2);
insert into test_table2 values(5);
insert into test_table2 values(6);


select num from test_table1
intersect
select num from test_table2;

       NUM
----------
         1
         5
