convert 2 fields into a date field in sql

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
Hi all.

I have a sql table with 2 columns: SaleMonth and SaleYear.

I want to be able to have the end user enter date range parameters (i.e. 11/2010 - 01/2011) the only way I think I can do this is by creating another column by combining my 2 columns (SaleMonth and SaleYear) like this: 11/1/2010 and 1/1/2011

Any ideas how I can do this?

Thank you in advance.
