SQL BETWEEN statement not capturing 'todays' records

I have a SQL statement with a BETWEEN date WHERE clause and it is not capturing those records with the same 'end' date.

My database column is a date/time with values of the date and time...12/31/2011 12:13:23 PM.

So I understand why it is not capturing it because the query is not pulling information after midnight on the day because my end date in the query shows 00:00:00.0.

For example, in my table it would have the following values:

ID               dtiResponseDate
1                  03/01/2011 3:34:42 PM
2                  12/31/2010 9:23:53 AM
3                 01/23/2011 10:29:39 PM

When I run my query looking for the dates between 10/01/2010 and 12/31/2010 (representing records from the last quarter), I should get record ID #2 as a result.  If I run the query for dates 01/01/2011 and 03/31/2011 (representing records from this quarter), I should get records #1 and #3 as a result.

What do I need to do in order to capture that record with the same date as my 'end date' in the BETWEEN statement of my WHERE clause?
<!---- this is part of my SELECT and WHERE clause which captures the dates for the current year, last quarter, and current quarter ---->
SELECT ...
DATEADD(yy,DATEDIFF(yy,0,GETDATE()),0) as BeginCurrentYear,
DATEADD(yy,DATEDIFF(yy,-1,GETDATE()),-1) as EndCurrentYear,
DATEADD(qq,DATEDIFF(qq,0,GETDATE())-1,0) as BeginLastQuarter,
DATEADD(qq,DATEDIFF(qq,0,GETDATE()),-1) as EndLastQuarter,
DATEADD(qq,DATEDIFF(qq,0,GETDATE()),0) as BeginThisQuarter,
DATEADD(qq,DATEDIFF(qq,-1,GETDATE()),-1) as EndThisQuarter
WHERE ...
<cfif cal is 'yy'>
AND REQ.dtiResponseDate BETWEEN 
	<CFQUERYPARAM CFSQLTYPE="CF_SQL_TIMESTAMP" VALUE="#getDates.BeginCurrentYear#"> AND 
	<CFQUERYPARAM CFSQLTYPE="CF_SQL_TIMESTAMP" VALUE="#getDates.EndCurrentYear#">
<cfelseif cal is 'lq'>
AND REQ.dtiResponseDate BETWEEN
	<CFQUERYPARAM CFSQLTYPE="CF_SQL_TIMESTAMP" VALUE="#getDates.BeginLastQuarter#"> AND 
	<CFQUERYPARAM CFSQLTYPE="CF_SQL_TIMESTAMP" VALUE="#getDates.EndLastQuarter#">                
<cfelse>
AND REQ.dtiResponseDate BETWEEN
	<CFQUERYPARAM CFSQLTYPE="CF_SQL_TIMESTAMP" VALUE="#getDates.BeginThisQuarter#"> AND 
	<CFQUERYPARAM CFSQLTYPE="CF_SQL_TIMESTAMP" VALUE="#getDates.EndThisQuarter#">                
</cfif>

That is because you're searching for values that are previous to 12/31/2011 00:00:00. Instead of just specifying the date, you have to specify it like: '12/31/2011 23:59:59'

Yeah I know...as I already said...the issue is...I'm not sure how to get the 'time' incorporated into this so it doesn't leave out those records...

To get rid off the time part, you can try like this.
select dateadd(dd,0,datediff(dd,0,getdate())) -- 2011-03-09 00:00:00.000

So, in your code, you can compare only date portions.
WHERE ...
<cfif cal is 'yy'>
AND dateadd(dd,0,datediff(dd,0,REQ.dtiResponseDate)) BETWEEN 
	<CFQUERYPARAM CFSQLTYPE="CF_SQL_TIMESTAMP" VALUE="#getDates.BeginCurrentYear#"> AND 
	<CFQUERYPARAM CFSQLTYPE="CF_SQL_TIMESTAMP" VALUE="#getDates.EndCurrentYear#">
<cfelseif cal is 'lq'>
AND dateadd(dd,0,datediff(dd,0,REQ.dtiResponseDate)) BETWEEN
	<CFQUERYPARAM CFSQLTYPE="CF_SQL_TIMESTAMP" VALUE="#getDates.BeginLastQuarter#"> AND 
	<CFQUERYPARAM CFSQLTYPE="CF_SQL_TIMESTAMP" VALUE="#getDates.EndLastQuarter#">                
<cfelse>
AND dateadd(dd,0,datediff(dd,0,REQ.dtiResponseDate)) BETWEEN
	<CFQUERYPARAM CFSQLTYPE="CF_SQL_TIMESTAMP" VALUE="#getDates.BeginThisQuarter#"> AND 
	<CFQUERYPARAM CFSQLTYPE="CF_SQL_TIMESTAMP" VALUE="#getDates.EndThisQuarter#">                
</cfif>

Sorry, I hadn't noticed that.

You can also use, which I think is simpler, a cast. Just cast the value as date (as opposed to datetime) and it should be rid of the time part.
