Hi,

Hoping you guys can help me.
I am trying to add the dates from 01-01-2013 to 12-31-2013 in a table where the only column is the "date"
How do I do these?

Result should be like this:
**************
Date
2013-01-01
2013-01-02
2013-01-03
2013-01-04
.......
2013-12-31
***************
Please help.

Thanks!

Lizzie :-)

If you have a numbers table in your database, use that to generate the dates; if you don't have one, you can use master..spt_values to sequential numbers - example:
INSERT INTO YourSingleColumnTable
(YourColumnName)
SELECT
	DATEADD(dd,number,'20130101') AS [Date]
FROM
	master..spt_values 
WHERE
	type = 'P'
	AND DATEADD(dd,number,'20130101') < '20140101'

I dont prefer using code with internal tables like master..spt_values especially in production as we cant guarantee implementation to be same across versions. I mostly use my own number table for similar situations


;With Date_table (dt)
AS
(
SELECT CONVERT(datetime,'20130101')
UNION ALL
SELECT dt+1
FROM Date_table
WHERE dt+1 <= '20131231'
)
SELECT *
FROM date_table
OPTION (MAXRECURSION 0)


output
------------------------------------
dt
