Can someone help me with this issue. I am using the below queries to get full month between two dates,
but I am not getting it with the below queries as in both cases are not showing same value of months which should have been 13.

select DATEDIFF(month, '2012-03-05', '2013-04-01')
from test1 where contract_no = 1023 - with this query I am getting 13 months

select DATEDIFF(month, '2012-03-05', '2013-03-28')
from test1 where contract_no = 1023 - with this query I am getting 12 months

-- this will work most of the time.
declare @Day1 date, @Day2 date

select @Day1 = '2012-03-05',
@Day2 = '2013-04-01'

SELECT @Day2 = DateAdd(dd,Day(@day1) * -1,@Day2)

select DATEDIFF(month, @Day1, @Day2)
