im trying to insert rows into a temp table but am not having any luck.


declare @StartDate as date
declare @EndDate as date
declare @today as date
set @StartDate = '1/14/2013 2:18:28 PM'
set @EndDate = '1/14/2013 2:18:28 PM'
set @today = getdate()
declare @myCounter as int
set @myCounter = 0

--drop table #tempDates

CREATE TABLE #tempDates(myDate date NULL)

if(@today != @StartDate)
begin
      --when today doesn't equal to startdate
      --ex: today 1/14 and start date 1/20
      -- should be 1/20, 1/21, 1/22, 1/23, 1/24, 1/25, 1/27
      while (@myCounter <= 7)
      begin
            set @StartDate = dateadd(dd, 1, @StartDate)
            insert into #tempDates values (@StartDate)
      end
end
else
begin
      --when today does equal startdate
      --ex: today 1/14 and start date 1/14
      -- should be 1/14, 1/15, 1/16, 1/17, 1/18, 1/19, 1/20
      while (@myCounter <= 7)
      begin
            set @StartDate = dateadd(dd, 1, @StartDate)
            insert into #tempDates values (@StartDate)
      end

Works fine for me, atlhough of course the dates start at 1/21 since the day is added before it goes to the temp table.

Oh, I corrected the no-return part: sorry, based on your comments about the results returned, I assumed you had to.  Here it is:


declare @StartDate as date
declare @EndDate as date
declare @today as date
set @StartDate = '1/14/2013 2:18:28 PM'
set @EndDate = '1/14/2013 2:18:28 PM'
set @today = getdate()
declare @myCounter as int
set @myCounter = 0

--drop table #tempDates

CREATE TABLE #tempDates(myDate date NULL)

if(@today != @StartDate)
begin
      --when today doesn't equal to startdate
      --ex: today 1/14 and start date 1/20
      -- should be 1/20, 1/21, 1/22, 1/23, 1/24, 1/25, 1/27
      while (@myCounter <= 7)
      begin
            insert into #tempDates values (@StartDate)
            set @StartDate = dateadd(dd, 1, @StartDate)
            set @myCounter = @myCounter + 1  
      end
end
else
begin
      --when today does equal startdate
      --ex: today 1/14 and start date 1/14
      -- should be 1/14, 1/15, 1/16, 1/17, 1/18, 1/19, 1/20
      while (@myCounter <= 7)
      begin
            insert into #tempDates values (@StartDate)
            set @StartDate = dateadd(dd, 1, @StartDate)
            set @myCounter = @myCounter + 1
      end
end

select * from #tempDates

Change:

while (@myCounter <= 7)

to

while (@myCounter < 7)

in both places.
