Microsoft SQL Server Generating a Date Range With a Tally Table


Example

Another way you can generate a range of dates is by utilizing a Tally Table to create the dates between the range:

Declare   @FromDate   Date = '2014-04-21',
          @ToDate     Date = '2014-05-02'

;With 
   E1(N) As (Select 1 From (Values (1), (1), (1), (1), (1), (1), (1), (1), (1), (1)) DT(N)),
   E2(N) As (Select 1 From E1 A Cross Join E1 B),
   E4(N) As (Select 1 From E2 A Cross Join E2 B),
   E6(N) As (Select 1 From E4 A Cross Join E2 B),
   Tally(N) As
   (
        Select    Row_Number() Over (Order By (Select Null)) 
        From    E6
   )
Select   DateAdd(Day, N - 1, @FromDate) Date
From     Tally
Where    N <= DateDiff(Day, @FromDate, @ToDate) + 1
