Pulling out part of Unix Timestamp

Recommended Posts

Hi all -- I hope you are having a great weekend.

If I have dates stored in a unix timestamp, is it possible to do a MySQL query that pulls all dates from a certain month?  Do I have to pull all the dates first & then specify the ones I want (seems resource-intensive)?

Thanks so much!

i would just come up with two variables (one for the first day of the month and one for the last), and then you could query for all records beween those timestamps:
[code]
<?php
list($year, $month, $day) = explode('-', date('Y-m-d'));
$first = mktime(0,0,0,$month,1,$year);
$last = mktime(0,0,0,$month,date('t'),$year);
$sql = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM table WHERE dateCol >= $first AND dateCol <= $last");
?>
[/code]

hope that helps ;)

Thanks so much!  I had to tweak it for my particular code, but the concept works beautifully!

Thanks again --
