Hello all,
I have a table (SQL Server 2008 R2) with 2 datetime fields, like:

StartDate - EndDate

Now I have a query with 2 variables, Date1 and Date2.

How can I know if there is an overlapping between these dates?

For example I have to check if the range between Date1 and Date2
is inside (also for one second) between StartDate and EndDate in the table.

How can I accomplish this?

Thank you.

and @data1<EndDate
