Merge fields from two tables in a view based on a span of days

I have two tables;  PayData  with 5 fields:  PRDate, Dept, Amount, Hours, EarnCode and PaySched with 5 fields; PRNum, FromDate, ThroughDate, RptDate, Year.  


I want to merge the field values within the PayData file with the correct PRNum when the PayData.PRDate falls within the PaySched.FromDate and PaySched.ThroughDate.


How can I define the view to get what I need?

Thanks

Glen

SELECT pd.*, ps.* --whatever columns you need from each table
FROM PayData pd
LEFT OUTER JOIN PaySched ps ON
    pd.PRDate >= ps.FromDate AND
    pd.PRDate <= ps.ThroughDate
