Select
      CASE WHEN MyDateTime >= '20100101' AND <= '20110101' THEN 'Between 2010 01 01 AND 2011 01 01' END as Period
FROM TABLE
 
I realize it is something like:
trunc(MyDateTime) or LEFT(MyDateTime,8)
But not sure of the overall syntax..

If you don't include an else, it will put nulls in

CASE WHEN DATEPART(yyyy,MyDateTime) = 2010 THEN 'Between 2010 01 01 AND 2011 01 01' ELSE 'Another Period' END as Period

Or

CASE WHEN MyDateTime BETWEEN '2010-01-01' AND '2011-01-01' THEN 'Between 2010 01 01 AND 2011 01 01' ELSE 'Another Period' END AS Period

You can add as many WHEN's as you want.
