Hi Experts,

I just inheritted a badly setup database, where paymDate is varchar(20), but its contents is formatted as m/d/yyyy

My question is, in this case, how can I SELECT all records between 6/1/2011  and 6/30/2011?

When i do the following, i also get June 2010 data.

Thank you.
/****** Script for SelectTopNRows command from SSMS  ******/
SELECT TOP 1000 [id]
      ,[invoiceNumber]
      ,[paymentDate]
  FROM [citysightcarts].[dbo].[Invoices]
  
  WHERE [paymentDate] >= '7/1/2011'
    AND [paymentDate] <= '7/31/2011'
    
 ORDER BY id
