I have been asked to load this calendar table 10 years out. There is a holiday flag field that will indicate 1 for the days of New Year's, Memorial, Independence, Labor, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. I also have to consider Leap years.
I've searched a bit for some examples and I'm still left needing some direction as to how to get started, or possibly a link to some solid examples.

CREATE TABLE [dbo].[DimCalendar](
      [DateWK] [int] NOT NULL,
      [DateNK] [smalldatetime] NOT NULL,
      [FullDate] [varchar](20) NOT NULL,
      [DayOfWeek] [tinyint] NOT NULL,
      [DayOfMonth] [tinyint] NOT NULL,
      [DayOfYear] [tinyint] NOT NULL,
      [DayName] [varchar](9) NOT NULL,
      [DayAbbrev] [char](3) NOT NULL,
      [Weekday] [bit] NOT NULL,
      [Holiday] [bit] NOT NULL,
      [MonthNum] [tinyint] NOT NULL,
      [MonthName] [varchar](10) NOT NULL,
      [MonthAbbrev] [char](3) NOT NULL,
      [Quarter] [tinyint] NOT NULL,
      [YearNum] [smallint] NOT NULL,
      [FiscalWeek] [tinyint] NOT NULL,
      [FiscalMonth] [tinyint] NOT NULL,
      [FiscalYear] [smallint] NOT NULL,
 CONSTRAINT [PK_Calendar] PRIMARY KEY CLUSTERED

      [DateWK] ASC
)WITH (PAD_INDEX  = OFF, STATISTICS_NORECOMPUTE  = OFF, IGNORE_DUP_KEY = OFF, ALLOW_ROW_LOCKS  = ON, ALLOW_PAGE_LOCKS  = ON) ON [PRIMARY]

you can use tgis to get started...

it will generate 10years plus 8 days worth of dates...

just add in the other datename/part requirements...

after the main insert i'd then update the required dates for holiday flags ....



insert into calendar

select datepart(wk,fulldate),fulldate,fulldate
        ,datepart(dw,fulldate)
       ,....

   from (select dateadd(d,d.number+(y.number*366),startdate) as FullDate
              from (select '20110101' as startdate) as x
              cross join (select number from master.dbo.spt_values where  type='p' and number between 0 and 366) as d
              cross join (select number from master.dbo.spt_values where  type='p' and number between 0 and 9) as y
