Here is my requirement. Can we achieve this in SQL?


0123400000 01/01/2010,12/31/2021

select a.col1, a.col2, a.col3, b.col1, b.col2,b.col3
from tablea
left join tableB
on tabla.col1 = tablb.col1
and a.col2<= b.col3
and a.col3 >= b.col2

0123400000,11/01/2008,04/29/ 2009,0123400000,NULL,,NULL
0123400000,04/30/2009,07/14/2010,0123400000,01/01/ 2010,12/31/2021
0123400000,07/15/2010,07/16/2010,0123400000,01/01/ 2010,12/31/2021
0123400000,07/17/2010,09/17/2010,0123400000,01/01/ 2010,12/31/2021

I have to create an additional row when there is match with tableb and a.col2 and b.col2 are not aligned correctly and also have to adjust the dates when I get the first match from tableB

Required Output:

0123400000,04/30/2009,12/31/2009 --- adjust the end date to b.col2-1
0123400000,01/01/2010,07/14/2010 ---- create this additional row and have the same b.col2 date.
