I actually simplified the scenario so I could the question,
Our partitions are actually string of dates with hour

So the query was actually
Partition >= '20110301_20' and Partition <= '2011030223'

Still using a single quote wouldn't be advised?

Is your table partitioned by int or string?

'5' is not less then '20' when you are treating them as strings. Don't
put single quotes around numbers
