Assuming a person joined a firm on 10-01-10

I need to derive the following time periods - 10-1-10 , 9-30-11, 10-1-11 , 9-30-12, 10-1-12 , 9-30-13, pls suggest the SQL

for ex:

Customer_no        DateAdded
 123            10-01-10      

Result should be as below:


Customer_no        DateAdded           T1              T2             T3             T4              T5             T6  

   123            10-01-10            10-1-10       9-30-11     10-1-11      9-30-12     10-1-12     9-30-13

Try this:
-- Given table 
CREATE TABLE Cust (Customer_no INT, DateAdded DATE);
INSERT INTO dbo.Cust ( Customer_no, DateAdded )
VALUES  ( 123, -- Customer_no - int
          '10/1/10'  -- DateAdded - date
          ),
		  ( 124, -- Customer_no - int
          '10/15/10'  -- DateAdded - date
          );

--Example 1
SELECT C.Customer_no, C.DateAdded, C.DateAdded T1, DATEADD(YEAR, 1, DATEADD(DAY, -1, C.DateAdded)) T2, DATEADD(YEAR, 1, C.DateAdded) T3, DATEADD(YEAR, 1, DATEADD(DAY, -1, C.DateAdded)) T4, DATEADD(YEAR, 1, C.DateAdded) T5, DATEADD(YEAR, 1, DATEADD(DAY, -1, C.DateAdded)) T6
FROM dbo.Cust C;

Thanks so much Chris , but have a small issue here
requirement says that If the person was added 10-15-12, we would need time periods 10-15-12, 10-14-13 and 10-15-13 only.
So only T1, T2 and T3 will have the date values, rest of them will be null as we donot have 10-15-14 yet(it's a date in future), how would I handle that?

OK, with the same setup table you can set up a CTE with your ranges and then use a PIVOT to get these results:
Query Resultshere is code for the CTE and PIVOT:
WITH YearRanges(Label, YearsToAdd, DaysToSubtract) AS 
(
SELECT 'T1', 0, 0
UNION ALL
SELECT 'T2', 1, 1
UNION ALL
SELECT 'T3', 1, 0
UNION ALL
SELECT 'T4', 2, 1
UNION ALL
SELECT 'T5', 2, 0
UNION ALL
SELECT 'T6', 3, 1
)
SELECT * FROM 
(
SELECT  C.Customer_no, 
        C.DateAdded, 
		YearRanges.Label,
        DATEADD(YEAR, YearRanges.YearsToAdd, DATEADD(DAY, -YearRanges.DaysToSubtract, C.DateAdded)) d
FROM dbo.Cust C
CROSS JOIN YearRanges
WHERE DATEADD(YEAR, YearRanges.YearsToAdd, DATEADD(DAY, -YearRanges.DaysToSubtract, C.DateAdded)) <= GETDATE()
) p
PIVOT (MIN(d) FOR Label IN ([T1], [T2], [T3], [T4], [T5], [T6])) pvt

Open in new window


The CTE is just a convenient way to create the work table, you could just as easy create a permanent helper table to hold those time period range values and use it to accomplish the same results.
