# Calculate the contractual year period

Hi

I would be grateful if someone could create (or point me in the direction of) a user defined function that takes 4 parameters  (1) fromDD  (2) fromMM  (3) toDD  (4) toMM and dependant on todays date will return two dates (1) fromDate (2) toDate

Example 1:

fromDD = 01
fromMM = 04
toDD = 31
toMM = 03
todays date 18th July 2006

Return values would be

fromDate = 1-Apr-2006
toDate = 31-Mar-2007

Example 2:

fromDD = 01
fromMM = 10
toDD = 30
toMM = 09
todays date 18th July 2006

Return values would be

fromDate = 1-Oct-2005
toDate = 30-Sep-2006

Thanks.

DECLARE @fromDD CHAR(2)
DECLARE @fromMM CHAR(2)
DECLARE @toDD CHAR(2)
DECLARE @toMM CHAR(2)

DECLARE @curYear INT
SET @curYear = YEAR(GETDATE())

DECLARE @fromDate DATETIME
DECLARE @toDate DATETIME

SET @fromDate = CONVERT(DATETIME, CONVERT(VARCHAR, @curYear)+@fromMM+@fromDD, 112)
SET @toDate = CONVERT(DATETIME, CONVERT(VARCHAR, @curYear)+@toMM+@toDD, 112)

IF (@fromDate > @toDate)
BEGIN
SET @toDate = DATEADD(y, 1, @toDate)
END

-- Here you may return the date as VARCHAR by using CONVERT(VARCHAR, @toDate, XXX). Consult bookonline for XXX to get the format you want

/*
You may need to create 2 user-defined functions - one for getFromDate, the other for getToDate.
GETDATE() cannot be used inside a user-defined fucntion, so you need to pass it to your functions as well.
