Query records between two dates and times within those dates

Cant-We-Al-lJust- Get-Along 1 Reputation point

Hello All,

I want to query records between two dates and times within those dates.

So, if I wanted to get all records from 09-13-2021 at 05:00:00 in the morning through 09-14-2021 at 04:59:59 the following morning, how would I go about it?

Thanks ADawn

    For this to be possible there must actually be a column that holds this information. But if there is, it is simple:

    SELECT *
     FROM  tbl
    WHERE datecol >= '20210913 05:00'
       AND  datecol < '20210914 05:00'

    Hi @Cant-We-Al-lJust- Get-Along ,

    Welcome to the microsoft TSQL Q&A forum!

    For this type of problem we recommend that you post CREATE TABLE statements for your tables together with INSERT statements with sample data.We also need to see the expected result of the sample.So that we’ll get a right direction and make some test.

    Please try:

    ;WITH cte  
     as(SELECT * FROM yourtable  
        WHERE Datecolumn BETWEEN '2021-09-13' AND '2021-09-14')  
    SELECT * FROM cte  
    WHERE Timecolumn BETWEEN '05:00:00' AND ' 04:59:59'  

    If this does not solve your problem, please provide more information.

    If you have any question, please feel free to let me know.

    Just in case you are still interested, and you do not want to make datetime from date and time, then check this approach too:

    select * from MyTable
    where ( D = '2021-09-13' and T >= '05:00' )
       or ( D = '2021-09-14' and T <  '05:00' )

    where D is the date column, T — the time column.
