are :sdate1 and :edate1  dates or are they strings?

in one query you convert them to dates

  AND call_dt BETWEEN TO_DATE(':SDATE1' || ' 00:00:00', 'YYYY-MM-DD HH24:MI:SS')
                     AND  TO_DATE(':EDATE1' || ' 23:59:59', 'YYYY-MM-DD HH24:MI:SS')

but in the other you don't

AND date_sent BETWEEN :sdate1 AND :edate1


are call_dt and date_sent both dates?

in either case you don't want to put the binds inside the quotes

':SDATE1'  ':EDATE1'

if they are dates you don't want to convert them at all
if they are strings you should convert them the same in both cases

BETWEEN TO_DATE(:SDATE1 || ' 00:00:00', 'YYYY-MM-DD HH24:MI:SS')
                     AND  TO_DATE(:EDATE1 || ' 23:59:59', 'YYYY-MM-DD HH24:MI:SS')
