Try this,

SET DateFormat='MM.DD.YYYY';


tab2:
LOAD * INLINE [
    PURCHASE ORDER, ITEM, COMPANY, ORDER DATE
    P1, I1, AAA, 12.02.2021
    P2, I2, AAA, 12.06.2021
    P3, I3, AAA, 12.01.2023
];

tab1:
LOAD * INLINE [
    CONTRCAT, ITEM, COMPANY, START DATE, END DATE
    C1, I1, AAA, 12.01.2021, 12.03.2021
    C1, I2, AAA, 12.03.2021, 12.03.2022
    C1, I3, AAA, 12.01.2021, 12.03.2021
];

Inner Join
IntervalMatch([ORDER DATE], ITEM, COMPANY)
LOAD [START DATE], [END DATE], ITEM, COMPANY
Resident tab1;
