Get all dates between two specified dates in sql server

Description: While working with sql server database we often need to deal with dates. Few days back I need to get the dates between the date range I specify. There are many ways to get this done but here I have shared how to get this using CTE.

Implementation: Let’s write the query using CTE to select the dates between date range.
DECLARE @StartDate DATE='2017-01-01', @EndDate DATE='2017-01-10';

;WITH DateCTE(DateList) AS
            SELECT @StartDate as Date
            UNION ALL
            SELECT DATEADD(d,1,DateList)
            FROM DateCTE WHERE DateList < @EndDate

Result will be as shown in image above.
