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.

JSON is being used more and more, besides XML, and you surely wanted to parse the data out into SQL instead of doing it in some Javascript. The below function in SQL Server can do the job for you, returning a quick table with the parsed data.
