Hi

I'm writing a room booking system to integrate with an existing system. I'm sure the SQL I need has been written before can anyone help.

I have a few tables the key ones are Rooms

RoomID
RoomName

and RoomsSchedule

RoomScheduleID
RoomID
Decsription
Start
End

I need the sql to select all booked rooms between 2 dates, and all rooms with free slots between 2 dates.

This will be further complicated as I need recurring bookings, but don't know how I'm going to do that yet.

SELECT S.RoomScheduleID, R.RoomName, S.Decsription, S.Start, S.End
FROM Rooms R
	INNER JOIN RoomsSchedule S ON (S.RoomID = R.RoomID)
WHERE S.Start >= @Date1 AND S.End <= @Date1
	AND S.Start >= @Date2 AND S.End <= @Date2

all rooms with free slots between 2 dates
SELECT R.RoomName
FROM Rooms R
WHERE NOT EXISTS (SELECT 1

		WHERE S.RoomID = R.RoomID
			AND S.Start >= @Date1 AND S.End <= @Date1

Thanks Vitor

Are the >= & <= correct I'm not getting any records. I can't see where startdate will ever be greater than the end date.

Can you post some sample data so I can check what's wrong?

Well, you really don't have any rows to return because there's no rooms occupied between '2014-11-18 00:00:00'
and '2014-11-20 00:00:00'
. But if you run my 2nd query you'll have the free rooms.

Using the parameters below should it return this appointment - (2, 1, 'Room 1 booking', '2014-11-10 00:09:00', '2014-11-10 00:14:00')

declare @Date1 smalldatetime
set @Date1='2014-11-04  00:00:00'
declare @Date2 smalldatetime
set @Date2='2014-11-15 00:00:00'

Ok, I understood.
Try these SELECT's then:
SELECT S.RoomsSchedule_ID, R.RoomName, S.Decsription, S.SlotStart, S.SlotEnd
FROM @Rooms R
	INNER JOIN @RoomsSchedule S ON (S.Room_ID = R.Room_ID)
WHERE S.SlotStart >= @Date1 AND S.SlotEnd <= @Date2

Open in new window

SELECT R.RoomName
FROM Rooms R
WHERE NOT EXISTS (SELECT 1 
		FROM RoomsSchedule S 
		WHERE S.RoomID = R.RoomID
			AND S.Start >= @Date1 AND S.End <= @Date2)
