I have two values
Month = 01
Year = 2011

now I want to get next 2 months using the query
generally we know the next 2 months are 02/2011, 03/2011

similarly if user enters 11/2011 then next 2 months will be 12/2011, 01/2012

so i wrote the below query but it works only for 11th and 12th month but not for other months so can any one correct me...

select * from tbl
Where  tbl.calendaryr * 100 + tbl.monthval
      BETWEEN (year* 100 + month)
      AND ((year* 100 + month) + 90)

if year = 2011 and month = 01 then

select * from tbl
Where  tbl.calendaryr * 100 + tbl.monthval
      BETWEEN (2011 * 100 + 01)
      AND ((2011 * 100 + 01) + 90)

even the dateadd function requires date
DATEADD ( datepart , number, date )


if i had date parameter then i will do like below:

SELECT * FROM TABLE
WHERE myDATEFIELD BETWEEN @DateParameter and dateadd(month,3,@DateParameter )


I am out of all options...so may i know how to fix my query or is there  any other alternate solutions...

I'm not a SQL Server person but can you not CONVERT the string to a date then do the date math with dateadd?

From the userinput, simply prefix 01/  and you apply this logic
Where mydatefiel >=Convert(date,  '01/.' + @dateparameter ,103)
And mydatefield < dated(month,4, convert( daytime, '01/' +@dateparameter, 103))

That should do it.

Actually I think I got it thanks for convert clue...

I can get the end month and end year as below and then i think its simple from there on...

YEAR(DATEADD(MONTH, 3, '2011'+'-'+'11'+'-'+'01'))
MONTH(DATEADD(MONTH, 3, '2011'+'-'+'11'+'-'+'01'))

Hi.
Try this:

select ADD_MONTHS(to_date(Year ||Month ||'01','YYYYMMDD'),1)
     , ADD_MONTHS(to_date(Year ||Month ||'01','YYYYMMDD'),2)
from dual


or this:

select to_char(ADD_MONTHS(to_date('2011' ||'01' ||'01','YYYYMMDD'),1),'MM/YYYY')
     , to_char(ADD_MONTHS(to_date('2011' ||'01' ||'01','YYYYMMDD'),2),'MM/YYYY')
from dual


Regards, Lacca

I also don't understand why you have put Lacca into accepted, as that code was for Oracle, and you are looking for SQL Server, so the syntax is different....
