I would like to use the query below to return a date range but its key is the LOUReturn field which determins which records in the date field. i'd also like to drop the hour/min/sec from the query. the code below parses ok but doesn't return any thing, but is i run it without the between date part all the data comes back. also I'll be building this query into SSRS report for weekly run.

use PCTSRS
select d.CM_ITEM_ID, d.CM_ITEM_NAME, d.CLIN, d.SEARCH_APPROVING_OFFICIAL as 'SAO', d.SEARCH_PROFESSIONAL as 'SP',
         r.FixedByPTO, r.DateReturned, r.LOUReturn, r.ErrorText
      from CLG_RETURNS r
            inner join CLG_DOCUMENTS d on r.ItemID = d.CM_ITEM_ID
      where r.LOUReturn = (1)and r.DateReturned between '2011-02-16 00:00:00.000' and '2010-03-10 00:00:00.000'
      
      order by r.DateReturned desc

>> r.DateReturned between '2011-02-16 00:00:00.000' and '2010-03-10 00:00:00.000'

That is because your "from" date is greater than you "to" date

Maybe you meant:

r.DateReturned between '2011-02-16 00:00:00.000' and '2011-03-10 00:00:00.000'

Swap the datereturned values around, the lower value first and the higher value after..

Hi

Also make sure your date field doesn't contain time if it does than use DateDiff function for compare dates whcih usually is recommended for any date comparisons criterias.

You could use a template like below (or even more preferable convert it to a parameterized stored procedure) -
use PCTSRS

declare @startdate datetime, @enddate datetime, @LOUReturn int

select	 @startdate = '2011-02-16'	-- Populate startdate her
	,@enddate = '2011-03-01'	-- populate enddate here
	,@LOUReturn = 1			-- Populate LouReturn value here

set @enddate = dateadd(second, -1, dateadd(day,1,@enddate))

select d.CM_ITEM_ID, d.CM_ITEM_NAME, d.CLIN, d.SEARCH_APPROVING_OFFICIAL as 'SAO', d.SEARCH_PROFESSIONAL as 'SP',
         r.FixedByPTO, r.DateReturned, r.LOUReturn, r.ErrorText 
from CLG_RETURNS r
            inner join CLG_DOCUMENTS d on r.ItemID = d.CM_ITEM_ID
where r.LOUReturn = @LOUReturn and r.DateReturned between @startdate and @enddate
