Individual date rows to date range

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 14, 2011    Points: 0   Category :


I have a table of data with one row per date. Due to some requirements, the data table needs to stay in it's current format. I have the following;

Date         CrewMember     Location

01/02/11   John Doe          SEA

02/02/11   John Doe          SEA

03/02/11   John Doe          SEA

04/02/11   John Doe          HOME

05/02/11   John Doe          TRAINING


I need a view of the Data Table like this

DateFrom  DateTo  CrewMember  Location

01/02/11   03/02/11  John Doe    SEA

04/02/11   04/02/11  John Doe    HOME

05/02/11   05/02/11  John Doe    TRAINING

Can this be done on the data layer with SQL? Thanks

I have a table containing courses, columns are 

Name - "Yoga Classes"

DateStart - "2/23/2010"

Filtering/selecting rows based on date


I have a gridview, based on thsi datasource:


<asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSourceAllLoads" runat="server" 
        ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:tplatz_dk_dbConnectionString %>"               
        SelectCommand="SELECT DISTINCT DATEADD(day, 0, DATEDIFF(day, 0, tblDelivered.delivered_Date)) AS delivered_Date, tblDelivered.delivered_LoadNo, tblDelivered.delivered_TrailerNo, ISNULL(tblDeliveredInfo.deliveryInfo_FirmaNavn, N'?') AS Expr1 FROM tblDelivered FULL OUTER JOIN tblDeliveredInfo ON tblDelivered.delivered_LoadNo = tblDeliveredInfo.deliveryInfo_LoadNr ORDER BY delivered_Date DESC">

Using a dropdownlist, I can filter (by changing datasource) the results based on customer names in a dropdownlist. This datasource, working perfectly, looks like this:


<asp:SqlDataSource ID="sqldataSourceKundeLoads" runat="server" 
        ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:tplatz_dk_dbConnectionString %>" 
        SelectCommand="SELECT  DATEADD(day, 0, DATEDIFF(day, 0, tblDelivered.delivered_Date)) AS delivered_Date, tblDelivered.delivered_LoadNo, tblDelivered.delivered_TrailerNo, ISNULL(tblDeliveredInfo.deliveryInfo_FirmaNavn, N'?&#

Need help in Date Range

HI Guys I need help to write a query I have a table Employee: empIDEmployeeName Task StartDt                                EndDt     1      xxx                  1    1950-01-01 00:00:00.000 1979-12-31 00:00:00.000     2     yyy                  2    1980-01-01 00:00:00.000 2009-06-30 00:00:00.000     3      aaa                 3    2009-06-30 00:00:00.000 2010-01-31 00:00:00.000     4     bbb                  4    2010-02-01 00:00:00.000 null when I pass one variable with date like 20070101 I need check the date ranges and get the exact record(this case 2nd records)

Question Regarding Date Range

I have a requirement to confirm how many employees were 'active' on a given date.  The employee table which I'm using contains the following fields (among others):  1.   Row_Start_Date (when an employee started with the company) 2.  Row_End_Date (when an employee terminated with the company (if applicable)) What would be the best way to design this?  For example, let's say an employee started on 1/1/2010 (Row_Start_Date) and is still employeed (Row_End_Date is null).  If an analyst wants to see how many employees were active on 5/1/2010, how do I design it so that this employee is counted.  If I build a date dimension off of Row_Start_Date, then this employee would be reflected on 1/1/2010, but not on 5/1/2010.  Hopefully this makes sense, and I appreciate any assistance/suggestions in advance...

Export Data to Excel Based on Date Range

I have data from multiple tables that I would like to display in a gridview via a stored procedure.  I need to select the data based on a date range and display it.  Once displayed I need to include a button that would allow the user to export the gridview data to an excel spreadsheet.  Does anyone have an out of the box solution or know of a tutorial I can use to accomplish this feat?  I am currently using 2.0 for this project. I am newish to .net. Thanks in advance. Here is my stored procedure that calls the data from multiple tables.USE [DATABASENAME] GO /****** Object: StoredProcedure [dbo].[GetUsersAll] Script Date: 09/03/2010 08:20:23 ******/ SET ANSI_NULLS ON GO SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON GO ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[GetUsersAll] AS SELECT aspnet_Users.UserName, aspnet_Membership.Email, Team.Name, MemberTeamRole.InsertDate, MemberTeamRole.ManagerApprovedDate, MemberTeamRole.RegistrarApprovedDate, MemberTeamRole.RoleName, MemberInfo.firstname, MemberInfo.lastname FROM aspnet_Membership INNER JOIN aspnet_Users ON aspnet_Membership.UserId = aspnet_Users.UserId INNER JOIN MemberInfo ON aspnet_Users.UserId = MemberInfo.memberid LEFT OUTER JOIN MemberTeamRole ON aspnet_Membership.UserId = MemberTeamRole

Date Range Problem

How would I go about returning the closest ReleaseDate to DateIn? The record I would like to return is (2010-07-18 00:00:00.000 2010-07-17 00:00:00.000) CREATE TABLE #test ( ID INT ,DateIn DATETIME ,ReleaseDate DATETIME ) INSERT INTO #test VALUES(1, '07/18/2010', '01/10/2010') INSERT INTO #test VALUES(2, '07/18/2010', '07/17/2010') SELECT * FROM #test WHERE CONVERT(CHAR(10), '07/17/2010', 101) <= CONVERT(CHAR(10), '07/18/2010', 101) AND CONVERT(CHAR(10), '07/18/2010', 101) <= CONVERT(CHAR(10), '01/10/2010', 101) DROP TABLE #test  

T-SQL query, average of daily time periods over a date range



I'm building a report in Crystal Reports using a SQL command against a T-SQL 2005 telephony database.

I need to be able to run the query across a given datetime range, 6 months for example and bring back a 5 day display (Mon-Fri) with a group for every 15 minute interval in each day.

The group figures need to contain an average of the amount of calls presented for each 15 minute interval on any day across the whole datetime range, so for example the Monday 10:00 - 10:15 figure would be an average of all calls presented in every 10:00-10:15 range on each of the Mondays that fall within the datetime range.

I've got a query built now that gives total presented figures grouped by these intervals across one week but I can't figure out how to do this average function across a range.

Does anyone have any idea how I'd go about accomplishing this? I'm pretty new to SQL but keen to learn so any pointers on functions to research etc would be very much appreciated.

Thanks alot in advance, Andy.

Validate (Javascript) if input date is within this range...


I'd like to validate if the inputed date is within this range:

3 weeks before today's date to 3 weeks after today's date 

The following Javascript code checks if the date is within either today's date or 2 weeks before:

var dateSystem = (dateToday.getMonth() + 1) + dtCh + dateToday.getDate() + dtCh + dateToday.getFullYear();
            var prev = new Date();
            //past date 14 dates before today
            prev.setDate(prev.getDate() - 14);
            var pastDate = (prev.getMonth() + 1) + dtCh + (prev.getDate()) + dtCh + prev.getFullYear();
            var time1 = new Date(dateSystem).getTime();
            dtStr = month + dtCh + day + dtCh + year;
            var dateuser = new Date(dtStr);
            var time2 = dateuser.getTime();
            if (time1 - time2 <= 1209600000 && time2 <= time1) {
                return true;
            } else {
                alert("Vaccines/Services date must be within this date range: " + pastDate + " to " + dateSystem);
                return false
            return true


I'm not sure how to modify. I actually got the code above from these forums.

Help is much appreciated!

Performance problem with date range JOINs



when I am joining two tables where one table has two columns which specify a date range and the other table has one column with a single date which must be in that range for a join, then the performance is not so hot. The T-SQL example only shows the basic query scheme, in reality there are appropriate indexes (but not on the date columns since I found them not helpful) and the DateRange column has about 100 mio rows and the Incident table about 200,000 rows. The query currently takes hours, I must speed it up by at least factor 10.

TIA for any ideas. Regards

	[DateRangeID] [int] NOT NULL PRIMARY KEY,
	[RangeTypeID] [smallint] NOT NULL,
	[StartDate] [date] NOT NULL,
	[EndDate] [date] NOT NULL)

	[IncidentID] [int] NOT NU

Query acting weird.. larger date range works in 1min 26sec and a smaller range say 1 month - 3 month


I have no clue why my query is acting weird

If i try to run it for 1/1/2010 9/30/2010 the query takes around 1min 26 sec and  return around a million rows

and If i run for 8/1/2010 to 8/31/2010 it takes forever to it...

basically i am getting data from 5 tables and putting it in a temp table and then updating that temp table 2-3 times with some information and then displaying it.

I am stumped as to why it works fast for a longer date range and runs the  snail for a small period of time..

I am in the verge of pulling my hair and going crazy..

any help will be appreciated.




Date range checking


Suppose I have a date range:

             15/09/2010  -  25/09/2010 

my user will provide another date range for example:       17/09/2010  -  22/09/2010

I want to check that user provided date range is within my date range.

Checking works if both of user provided dates are between my range. But I need to check if one of user provided date is in my date range and another is out of my date range. For example:

07/09/2010  -  22/09/2010

17/09/2010  -  27/09/2010

Here 22/09/2010 is in my date range and 17/09/2010 is also in my range.

I need to write a sql query that check user dates are in my dates.

Any help will be appritiated.

Date range queries


Hi All,


We have several reports where the user can specify a date range for the where clause, i.e. {[Date].[Date].[01 Jan 2008]:[Date].[Date].[ 01 Jan 2010]}. Since the date range can be very large, we are just wondering if the query processor can generate “smarter” execution plans so that the Aggregations on year and month level can be used…


Thanks in advance for your help and input.

Javascript Date Range


How can I arrange the javascript to check if the date the user has typed in is within this range? -

2 weeks prior to today and 2 weeks after today

Here's what I have so far:

var prev = new Date();
            var next = new Date();
            //past date 21 day before today
            prev.setDate(prev.getDate() - 21);
            //next date 21 days after today
            next.setDate(next.getDate() + 21);
            var pastDate = (prev.getMonth() + 1) + dtCh + (prev.getDate()) + dtCh + prev.getFullYear();
            var nextDate = (next.getMonth() + 1) + dtCh + (next.getDate()) + dtCh + next.getFullYear();
            var time1 = new Date(dateSystem).getTime();
            dtStr = month + dtCh + day + dtCh + year;
            var dateuser = new Date(dtStr);
            var time2 = dateuser.getTime();
            if (time1 - time2 <= 1209600000 && time2 <= time1) {
                return true;
            } else {
                alert("Vaccines/Services date must be within this date range: " + " " + "\n" + "\n" + "                      " + pastDate + " to " + nextDate);
                return false
            return true


returning a date with a count of zero if it doesn't exist in the date range?


i have the following query.

SELECT DATEADD(dd,0, DATEDIFF(dd,0,accesseddate)) AS hitdate, COUNT(hitid) AS hitsperday
FROM hits h
ON h.urlid = u.urlid
WHERE (accesseddate BETWEEN DATEADD(d, -6, GETDATE()) AND GETDATE() AND u.userid = @userid)
GROUP BY DATEADD(dd,0, DATEDIFF(dd,0,accesseddate))

but if there were no "hits" for a particular date range in the last week i only get the dates returned where there were hits. i need to get all the days returned and where there were no results, i need a zero returned.

hitdate            hitsperday

2010-10-07     2
2010-10-06     58
2010-10-04     1645
2010-10-03     1192 

what i need to return is this:     

hitdate                 hitsperday

2010-10-08     0
2010-10-07     2
2010-10-06     58
2010-10-05     0
2010-10-04     1645
2010-10-03     1192

any suggestions?

thank you very much.

List ALL Dates in Date Range When Selecting Count


Say I have a table called "Visits", and I want to create a query that counts the visits per day. 

The way I would accomplish this would be to create a query as such:

SELECT Count(VisitId) as VisitCount, Convert(varchar(32), VisitDateTime, 101) as VisitDate
FROM Visits
WHERE VisitDateTime BETWEEN '10/1/2010' AND '10/5/2010'
GROUP BY VisitDate

The problem I am trying to overcome is that if there were no visits in a given day, that day does not show in my list.  For example, if there were 3 visits on the 1st, 2 on the 2nd, none on the 3rd, and 5 on the 4th, my result set would look like:

3, 10/1/2010
2, 10/2/2010
4, 10/4/2010

How can I create my query so that I get all days in the date range listed in the result set regardless of whether the VisitCount is zero?
