Smart way to ask a question

There are naive questions, tedious questions, ill-phrased questions, questions put after inadequate self-criticism. But every question is a cry to understand (the world). There is no such thing as a dumb question. ― Carl Sagan

This one was so easy that I was looking for the "trick." I kept look and looking but never found one so I finally submitted my answer. I was relieved to see that I got it right. The amount of tension waiting to see the "You got it right" message was overwhelming.

I do not like qotd too easy or without tricks.

I get paranoid when the question SEEMS too easy. Sometimes life really is that easy - strange but true. :-)

I guessed 2 because BETWEEN is inclusive, and then I tried to run it. I found out that I needed SQL Server 2008 compatibility, don't have that, only 2005, so I changed the VALUES clause to UNIONs, and the DATE to DATEtime, then fuond out I had to be logged in as dbo, don't have that either, so I took the dbo. off of the select, and then it returned two rows, voilà!

CREATE TABLE SalesDates
(id INT, saledate DATEtime
);
go
INSERT INTO SalesDates
SELECT
1, '2012/1/1'
UNION
SELECT
2, '2012/1/2'
UNION
SELECT
3, '2012/1/3'
UNION
SELECT
4, '2012/1/4'
UNION
SELECT
5, '2012/1/5'
UNION
SELECT
6, '2012/1/6';
go
SELECT id
FROM SalesDates s
WHERE s.saledate NOT BETWEEN '2012/1/2' AND '2012/1/5';
go
DROP TABLE SalesDates;

Nice n easy question to finish off the week. It's one of those, "No, it can't be this easy" kind of questions. Always looking for the QotD trick, but there was none...this time. (Insert evil laugh in background here, 'Muhahahaha' :laughSmile Great question.



Everything is awesome!

I am a little surprised at the number of people that got this wrong. Maybe they read it wrong or looked at it too quickly. This is a straight back to basics logic question. While yes I agree with the others I was a little hesitant since it seemed too easy. Thanks for the nice light thinking after a long week.

Amazing that we are nearly 20 comments in and no one complained about the date format regional issue. Of course, that might be because the results would be the same in other regions....
