Good afternoon, could give me an example where display is better to use BETWEEN and we should not use IN

They are actually two different things.

If you all the dates between January 1 and today, use

  BETWEEN '01/01/2016' and '08/06/2016'

If you want just the first of the month in that range, use

  IN ('01/02/2016', '02/01/2016', '03/01/2016', ... , '08/01/2016')


Good Luck!
