Join to Date table and Replicate

Hello,

 

I have received a data set that is grouped by date, each row has a start date and an end date among other key identifiers. I want to ungroup by date these in order to give a count on each day. However instead of just a static count, I want to replicate each day grouped by key characteristics. This would create a new table instead of just a column on the date table. Each entry would have a day and then be grouped by key characteristics. I think I need to do a join with a date table but from there I am lost. 

 

Ive made an example table of what I am trying to do:

 

This is the orginal table

This is what Im trying to get at, ive only included a few dates but ideally this would populate over the entire month of Febuary in this example. For my actual data set it would be crated over the entirity of the data set\.

Here is the text from the first table:

NameStart DateEnd DateCarState
Pete2/1/20182/15/2018CivicCalifornia
Samson2/1/20182/28/2018CivicTexas
Edgar2/15/20182/18/2018AccordTexas
Pete2/16/20182/22/2018AccordTexas
Edgar2/19/20182/22/2018CivicTexas
Sarah2/1/20182/15/2018OdessyWyoming

 

Thank you in advance!!
