How to populate a temp table with the days in a month

As described in the title this is a dynamic sql script that will populate a temp table with the day dates of the current month as outputted below:

calendarTableTo create a temporary calendar table for a greater period of time than just the current month:

Set @startDate to any historical date and @numberOfLoops to any number you like (365 being a year from the @startdate).

To make the table persistent:

Remove the # signs from the #calendarTable temp table referenced and rename the table accordingly.

You could also remove any columns you do not need.

IF OBJECT_ID('tempdb..#calendarTable') IS NOT NULL
	DROP TABLE #calendarTable;
	GO

CREATE TABLE #calendarTable (
	"DayID" INT
	,"DayOfMonth" INT
	,"DayOfQuarter" INT
	,"DayOfYear" INT
	,"MonthOfDate" INT
	,"YearOfDate" INT
	,"DayDate" DATE
	,PRIMARY KEY (DayID)
	)

DECLARE @startDate AS DATE
DECLARE @baseDate DATE
	,@offSet INT
	,@numberOfLoops INT

/*

SET @startDate = GETUTCDATE() /*'20150101'*/

SET @offSet = 0
SET @numberOfLoops = DATEDIFF(DAY, @baseDate, DATEADD(MONTH, 1, @baseDate)) /*365*/

WHILE (@offSet < @numberOfLoops)
BEGIN
	INSERT INTO #calendarTable (
		"DayID"
		,"DayOfMonth"
		,"DayOfQuarter"
		,"DayOfYear"
		,"MonthOfDate"
		,"YearOfDate"
		,"DayDate"
		)
	SELECT (@offSet + 1)
		,DATEPART(DAY, DATEADD(DAY, @offSet, @baseDate))
		,DATEDIFF(D, DATEADD(QQ, DATEDIFF(QQ, 0, DATEADD(DAY, @offSet, @baseDate)), 0), DATEADD(DAY, @offSet, @baseDate)) + 1
		,DATEPART(DAYOFYEAR, DATEADD(DAY, @offSet, @baseDate))
		,DATEPART(MONTH, DATEADD(DAY, @offSet, @baseDate))
		,DATEPART(YEAR, DATEADD(DAY, @offSet, @baseDate))
		,DATEADD(DAY, @offSet, @baseDate)

	SET @offSet = @offSet + 1
