I have a table with the following schema:

EmployeeID int
StartDate smalldatetime
EndDate smalldatetime

One record in this table contatis the following data:

ID   StartDate        EndDate
1     2010-11-30     2011-05-16

I need to know if the Strat/End Date record is between a range, for example '2011-04-16' and '2011-05-15'.
How can I achieve this with SQL Server ?

from tablename
where startdate between '2011-04-16' and '2011-05-15'
or enddate between '2011-04-16' and '2011-05-15'

This will not work for me. What I need is to calculate if the employee is out of work in the period specified (in this case he started in medical license in 2010-11-30 and ended in 2011-05-16).

I need to ensure that in the period from '2011-04-16' until  '2011-05-15' he was in medical license. If I use your approach (which was what I´m using today) the program will not works fine!

Thanks in advance
