I have two columns i.e. Leavefrom and Leaveto, which tells leave of an employee. It may have any value like 01/02/06 to 13/01/06 or 05/02/06 to 15/04/06 (dd/mm/yy).

I want to calculate No. of Days of Current Month between two dates. lets consider 05/02/06 to 15/04/06, I want to calculate No. of Days of April (which is current month). Is it possible through SQL Query. I search about "DATEDIFF" but it is not working on my problem.

Please help me...

Thanks, Madhivanan but it calculates No. of days between two supplied dates, I want to calculate only "Current Months Days" between any two dates.

	ST = convert(varchar(10),ST,121),
	DT = convert(varchar(10),DT,121),
	-- Compare to last day of month
	when DT > dateadd(mm,datediff(mm,-1,getdate()),-1)
	-- Difference between start date and last day of month
	then datediff(dd,ST,dateadd(mm,datediff(mm,-1,getdate()),-1))
	-- Difference between start date and last date
	else datediff(dd,ST,DT)
