MySQL Date functions

Recommended Posts

I am trying to grab a field in a database where a date field is between the current date and within 60 / 45 / 30 / 15 days time(selected by a drop down box). Here is my sql

 

SELECT domainname FROM domainname WHERE expirydate BETWEEN CURDATE() and CURDATE()+$selecteddays

 

I have typed the same sql into the MySQL console and it accepts it without error, but returns no results, but I know there are entries the query should pick out that are present in the table. Any ideas people? Many thanks!

your sytanx doesn\'t even make sense. Today+15?!?!...that day doesn\'t even exist yet! Another thing, the earllier date has to come first. Try:

 

SELECT * FROM table

WHERE (Date BETWEEN CURDATE()-\'$selecteddays\' and CURDATE())

 

 

i\'m pretty sure you meant 15/45/60 days back...right?

Just for the record...

 

The above query was actually taken from an Access DB and worked fine (except CURDATE was DATE), obviously not standard SQL I guess. Thanks.

Got the query working...

 

SELECT domainname FROM domainname WHERE expirydate

          BETWEEN CURDATE() AND DATE_ADD(CURDATE(), INTERVAL $selecteddays DAY)
