I am trying to get a query to work.  I have a table that includes a column REQDATE that is a datetime type.  I need to return all records for a span of time REQDATE between '03/30/2009' and '04/06/2009'.  With the records returned I need to return all the records where the time is between 17:00:00 hours and 08:00:00 hours.  I am having trouble with this part.  The datetime is written like 08:00:00 AM, not in 24-hour time.
SELECT     *
FROM         TASKS
WHERE     (DATEPART(hh, REQDATE) BETWEEN '17:00:00' AND '08:00:00') AND (REQDATE BETWEEN CONVERT(DATETIME, '2009-03-30 00:00:00', 102) 
                      AND CONVERT(DATETIME, '2009-04-06 00:00:00', 102))

WHERE
(datepart(hh,REQDATE)+':'+datepart(ss,REQDATE)+':'+datepart(ss,REQDATE)) BETWEEN '17:00:00' AND '08:00:00'
and
REQDATE BETWEEN CONVERT(DATETIME, '2009-03-30 00:00:00', 102)

Sorry, re read your question here you go:
SELECT     *
FROM         TASKS
WHERE ReqDate > CONVERT(DATETIME,'2009-03-30 17:00:00',102)
and ReqDate < CONVERT(DATETIME, '2009-04-06 08:00:00',102)

You want the hour > 17 or hour < 8.  It can't be both.

SELECT     *
FROM         TASKS
WHERE     REQDATE >= CONVERT(DATETIME, '2009-03-30 00:00:00', 102)
and reqdate <= CONVERT(DATETIME, '2009-04-06 00:00:00', 102))
and (DATEPART(hh, REQDATE) <8 or DATEPART(hh, REQDATE) > 17)
