To display results in date range

I am using a query where i am trying to get the result where the datecolumn>='Fromdate' and datecolum<=ToDate'.
Ex: SELECT  
        cc.date,
        cc.col2 AS Description
FROM    table1 cc,
        table2 pn
WHERE    cc.date>=(SELECT DISTINCT
            CASE
              WHEN :F1 IS NULL
              THEN sysdate - 60
              ELSE :F1
            END
          FROM dual
          )
        AND cc.date<=
          (SELECT DISTINCT
            CASE
              WHEN :F2 IS NULL
              THEN sysdate
              ELSE :F2
            END
          FROM dual
          )
Here F1 is From Date i.e. '1-MAR-2011' and F2 is ToDate i.e. '17-MAR-2011'
here I am not getting the records which are in the date of 17 th march 2011.
If I change the date to '18-MAR-2011' then I am getting the records on 17th march.

Is there any thing worng with the query?
Expectation is as I am using <='17-MAR-2011', I need to get the result of 17 March also.

OK, not I did it twice.  This is definitely the right number.

86400 is the number of seconds in 1 day.
SELECT  
        cc.date,
        cc.col2 AS Description
FROM    table1 cc,
        table2 pn
WHERE    cc.date>=nvl(to_date(:f1, 'DD-MON-YYYY'), trunc(sysdate) - 60)
        AND cc.date<= nvl(to_date(:f2, 'DD-MON-YYYY'), trunc(sysdate)) + (86399/86400)

Your date column contains a time portion which is not equal to midnight.

I believe you should also be able to simplify your query to this:
SELECT  
        cc.date,
        cc.col2 AS Description
FROM    table1 cc,
        table2 pn
WHERE    cc.date>=nvl(to_date(:f1, 'DD-MON-YYYY'), trunc(sysdate) - 60)
        AND cc.date<= nvl(to_date(:f2, 'DD-MON-YYYY'), trunc(sysdate)) + (84399/84440)

Actually, I fat fingered the number, it should be this:

SELECT  
        cc.date,
        cc.col2 AS Description
FROM    table1 cc,
        table2 pn
WHERE    cc.date>=nvl(to_date(:f1, 'DD-MON-YYYY'), trunc(sysdate) - 60)
        AND cc.date<= nvl(to_date(:f2, 'DD-MON-YYYY'), trunc(sysdate)) + (86399/86440)

Hello
First :
I am very suspicious that your Select Distinct Case query is correct and will return anything ! On the other hand you have only dummy field in Dual table.
Second:
Generally, instead of using CASE function, you can use much easier NVL function as:
SELECT NVL(F1, sysdate-60) FROM .....
NVL function does following: if F1 is null then return "sysdate-60", otherwise return F1
Third:
Why you use "table2 pn" in FROM part, since you don't have any field selected from it ?

Now, if you use where condition as "cc.date >= '1-Mar-2011' and cc.date <= '17-Mar-2011'" it MUST include both dates (from and to), unless there is nothing on 17 th march.  Try to avoid your CASE statements and "hardcode" your WHERE part (as I written above) and check the query result.
The Oracle has "default" date format (used for where condition) as "d-Mon-yyyy" so you can use this format without explicit conversion (cast). Otherwise you can use this cast form (e.g.):
cc.date >= TO_DATE('01.03.2011', 'DD.MM.YYYY')

Last question (to check it): is the cc.date fiield of DATE type ? If it is not, then you must think about casting from original filed type to DATE type.
