Or...

SELECT  CONVERT(VARCHAR(8), s.CREATED_TIME,3) as day from  Table1 s
             WHERE       created_time
 between cast('13 September 2011' as datetime) and  cast('20 September 2011 as datetime) order by created_time

You're converting to a string and comparing.

Try this:

SELECT  CONVERT(VARCHAR(8), s.CREATED_TIME,3) as day from  Table1 s
             WHERE       created_time
 between cast(CONVERT(VARCHAR(8), '13/09/11', 3)  as datetime) and  cast(CONVERT(VARCHAR(8), '20/09/11', 3) as datetime) order by created_time

I'm assuming created_time is a datetime field.

To avoid incompatibilities, I always use 'yyyyMMdd' format. You can try this:
WHERE       CONVERT(VARCHAR(8), s.created_time, 112)
 between '20110913' and '20110920'

You don't even need to convert your field to 112. SQL does an implicit conversion.

SQL does do implicit conversions, but explicit conversions are better in my opinion as at least you control the conversion and you don't rely on something to do it for you. We all know how much a nightmare date handling is because of the differing formats regardless of how good SQL's date handling system is.

That's why I use 112. DateField='20120301' is the same thing as DateField=CONVERT(datetime,'20120301'). And you have the exact same control over it without the explicit conversion and with it.
As a general rule, you should always use explicit conversions. But in this particular case, there is no difference, unless your date field isn't a date either.
And the yyyyMMdd format is the only one I found that is, so far, fully universal.
