How can I get the date column I need?

current: (This works fine)
WHERE date1 >= @STARTDATE
and date1 <= @ENDDATE

Desired:
I also need to get date column which is within -30 days of date1

date2 is within date1 - 30days

So that date2 can be any date included in date1 -30 days range

date2 will be dateadd(dd, -30, date1)

Just to clarify:

1. date2 is already its own column as a date. It lists dates beyond the date1 -30 date range.

2. So I need to filter the date2 column based on date1 -30 day range.

so can you write the formula so that it includes the existing date2 column?  Or, How can I apply the formula you sent.
I am looking to have date2 column return only the dates in the date range of date1 -30days.
I am not quiet understood. Is this what you are looking

WHERE date1 >= DATEADD(dd, -30, @STARTDATE )
and date1 <= @StartDate
date1 >= 01/01/2013 --@STARTDATE
 date1 <= 02/28/2013 --@ENDDATE

columns:
quote#          date1               date2
     1           01/01/2013      12/21/2012    <----This date is within -30 days of date1
     2           02/17/2013      01/25/2013    <----This date is within -30 days of date1
     3           02/08/2013      11/03/2012    <----This date is not within -30 days of date1
                                                                           I do not want to return this row.


I only want to return a row if the date2 column is within -30 days of date1
WHERE date2 <= Dateadd(dd, 30, Date1 )

if you want to add to the existing where clause use this

WHERE date1 >= @STARTDATE
and date1 <= @ENDDATE
and date2 <= Dateadd(dd, 30, Date1 )
Okay, I think you are getting close.
There is still a problem - It is returning up to 9 months difference.

Example:
     date1                              date2
10/15/2012                    01/27/2012    <------this should be within the range of date1 -30
you can put another condition there
and date2 <= Dateadd(dd, 30, Date1 )
and date1 < date2
But date1 should never be less than date2
WHERE date1 >= @STARTDATE
and date1 <= @ENDDATE
and datediff(dd, date1, date2 ) <= 30
Can't seem to make that work either.
try this.
WHERE date1 >= @STARTDATE
and date1 <= @ENDDATE
and date2 >= Dateadd(dd, -30, Date1 )

where dateadd(dd,30,date2) >= date1
do you have it working? maybe you can try:

WHERE date1 BETWEEN @STARTDATE and @ENDDATE
and date2 BETWEEN Dateadd(dd, -30, Date1 ) and Date1
