My table looks like this

1,410100, 200,2012-01-01
2,410100, 250,2012-01-02
3,410100, 300,2012-01-04

I need to add (missing date 2012-01-03) and keep the same
date for previous record (2,410100,250,2012-01-02). This will apply for any missing date on the table.

Any help please!!!

You need a calendar table for this, a table that just contains sequential dates from a starting date to an ending date. Once you have that, it's a simple left join or not exists to find the dates that don't exists in your table.
