I have a series of queries where I need to declare a date range, across the multiple queries there are two different fields that will need to use the date range (if that makes any difference).

WHERE CONVERT(DATETIME, DateOfService, 101) BETWEEN '2013-06-01' AND '2013-12-31'

WHERE CONVERT(DATETIME, CHARTED_DATE, 101) BETWEEN '2013-06-01' AND '2013-12-31'

How do I use the declare syntax to describe the between XYZ and ABC range?

Use this syntax:
DECLARE @XYZ DATETIME
DECLARE @ABC DATETIME
SET @XYZ =  '20130601' 
SET @ABC =  '20131231'

' OR use one line assignment like this:
' SELECT @XYZ =  '20130601', @ABC =  '20131231'

WHERE CONVERT(DATETIME, DateOfService, 101) BETWEEN @XYZ AND @ABC

WHERE CONVERT(DATETIME, CHARTED_DATE, 101) BETWEEN @XYZ AND @ABC

Open in new window

BTW, if the DateOfService and CHARTED_DATE are already datetime columns in your database, you do not need CONVERT statement, you can use them directly, like this:
WHERE DateOfService BETWEEN @XYZ AND @ABC

WHERE CHARTED_DATE BETWEEN @XYZ AND @ABC

Open in new window

This way it even be faster, as SQL Server will be able to use indexes
