I want to know how I can compare the day of a sql date to a date range.

What I want to do is select CREATED_DATE_FW and compare its day >=1 and <=10

CREATED_DATE_FW date examples:

2014-01-05
2014-01-15
2014-01-03

Just the day part?   Yes, use DATEPART to get the day, then make your comparison..

SELECT blah, blah, blah
CASE WHEN DATEPART(day, CREATED_DATE_FW) BETWEEN 1 and 10 THEN 'yes'
   ELSE 'no' end as some_date_range
FROM your_table ...

Select  Convert (date, GetDate()),day(GetDate()) Where day(GetDate()) Between 1 AND 10

Select CREATED_DATE_FW, day(CREATED_DATE_FW)  From tablename Where day(CREATED_DATE_FW) Between 1 AND 10

HA!  Perfect!   Why I was making this more complicated than it had to be I have no idea.   Never crossed my mind to use the DATEPART function in conjunction with simple BETWEEN logic... Thanks!
