I want to have startdate & enddate for 2009

Startdate should be Jan 31st 2009
EndDate should be March 31st 2009(Since Last Accounting Month is March)

Since, i need to use these dates in While Loop to run Temp Table.
Since for Every month end I need to run Procedure. So, i need to insert the code for StartDate & EndDate

I already wrote Below Code, but it doesnt work for March...The code is taking March 28th instead of March 31st, Since, Feb Month runs for 28th.

Declare @StartDate datetime
Declare @EndDate datetime

Set @EndDate = CONVERT(varchar,DATEADD(d,-DAY(GetDate()),GetDate()),101)
Set @StartDate = '1/31/'+ CAST(YEAR(@EndDate)as Char(4))

--Print @StartDate
--Print @EndDate

--Create Table

While @StartDate <= @EndDate
Begin

--Inserting Data into table

set @StartDate = dateadd(m, 1, @StartDate)
End



i am not good at writing Dates.

You can try this:
Declare @StartDate datetime
Declare @EndDate datetime
 
Set @EndDate = CONVERT(varchar,DATEADD(d,-DAY(GetDate()),GetDate()),101)
Set @StartDate = '1/31/'+ CAST(YEAR(@EndDate)as Char(4))
 
Declare @i INT
Set @i = 0
 
While @i <= datediff(mm, @StartDate, @EndDate)
Begin
 
print dateadd(mm, @i, @StartDate)
Set @i = @i + 1
 
End

Could you post the query you are executing? The query posted above won't give you same value.

I have made a small modification in the query though. It will work fine as posted, but it will give error if start date is Feb 28th. (as will the queries in your other posts).

Here's a query, it should work fine for all the scenarios. You can try this out and let me know if any questions
Declare @StartDate datetime
Declare @EndDate datetime
 
Set @EndDate = CONVERT(varchar,DATEADD(d,-DAY(GetDate()),GetDate()),101)
Set @StartDate = '1/31/'+ CAST(YEAR(@EndDate)as Char(4))
 
Declare @i INT
Set @i = 1
 
While @i <= datediff(mm, @StartDate, @EndDate) + 1
Begin
 
print DATEADD(Month, DATEDIFF(Month,0,@startdate)+@i, -1)
Set @i = @i + 1
 
End

This query will get you StartDate and EndDate both for given months. Hope this helps.
Declare @StartDate datetime
Declare @EndDate datetime
 
Set @EndDate = CONVERT(varchar,DATEADD(d,-DAY(GetDate()),GetDate()),101)
Set @StartDate = '02/28/'+ CAST(YEAR(@EndDate)as Char(4))
 
Declare @i INT
Set @i = 1
 
While @i <= datediff(mm, @StartDate, @EndDate) + 1
Begin
 
Print 'Start Date' 
print DATEADD(Month, DATEDIFF(Month,0,@startdate)+@i - 1, 0)
Print 'End Date'
print DATEADD(Month, DATEDIFF(Month,0,@startdate)+@i, -1)
 
Set @i = @i + 1
 
End
