The following procedure seems to be created properly, but when i call it, the while loop doesn't get executed.. I end up with a table with one row and a 0000-00-00 date.

call GetDatesInRange(2012-5-8, 2012-5-12)

DELIMITER //
 CREATE PROCEDURE GetDatesInRange(d1 date, d2 date)
     BEGIN
        declare sd date;
        declare ed date;

	set sd = d1;
        set ed = d2;


	create table allDates (	
		sd DATE not null,
		i INT(11),
		t VARCHAR(255)
		);
       while sd <= ed do
		insert into allDates (sd, i, t) values (sd, i, t);
		set sd = DATE_ADD(sd,INTERVAL 1 DAY);
	end while;
	
  END //
DELIMITER ;

Open in new window


Any help would be much appreciated.

the values clause refers to i and t. Where are these declared and given values?

What happens if you use

insert into allDates (sd) values (sd);

They were there for values I was going to define later. But it makes no difference. I took all references to them out and I still only get the one row with a 0000-00-00 date.

I am not a MySQL expert - but I wonder abaout call GetDatesInRange(2012-5-8, 2012-5-12).
I suspect 2012-5-8 is being interpreted aa 2012 minus 5 minus 8.

try call GetDatesInRange("20120508", "201205012")

That almost worked.

 the mysql date format is 0000-00-00, so in the end this worked:

call GetDatesInRange("2012-05-08", "2012-05-12")

Thanks so much.
