Extract Data from Start-Month and End-Month within one column

Hello experts,

I have an database, where the only column for date is Tabledate. I would like to do the query on this as start-month and end-month. For Example...

TableDate
2012-02-05
2012-04-25
2012-05-15
2012-06-25
2012-09-11
2012-11-02
2012-12-09

Open in new window

If, the user select start-month as march and end-month as december. the database should provide the data related to mentioned date ranging from march to december.

Can you suggest the query for this or any reference for this?
Thanks,
Shail

Hello Experts,

The month selection is numbers 01 to 12 and this is only for the year Jan 2012 to December 2012. If user select the month 04 as start-month and end-month as 02 then user will be prompted to select end -month greater then start month.

Thanks,

OK, then the constructed data strings for use in the query will consist of a "date" pattern like this.

2012-XX-01 will be the start date, where XX is the client-selected low month.
2012-YY-t will be the end date, where YY is the client-selected high month.  The "t" is the date() pattern for the last day of the month.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
