I have 2 columns of dates. What I need to do is to sum or count days in between. I know that there is the Datediff function. My problem is that I am trying to sum a startdate and an enddate. But if the start date starts on 6/1/2012 and ends on 6/1/2012 then I want to count this as 1. Can anyone please give me some guidance thanks in advance!

DATEDIFF(dd,@StartDate,@EndDate) + 1

when @StartDate>@EndDate then DATEDIFF(dd,@StartDate,@EndDate) - 1 end
