Problem with mysql YEAR_MONTH


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I have a problem with the YEAR_MONTH query in mysql, which is very bizzarre.


Having read the date/time functions on the mysql site, they say using YEAR_MONTH extracts the year an month from a given date field


a simple query should work:




but get a mysql error.




SELECT MONTH(CURDATE()) and also SELECT YEAR(CURDATE()) which both work fine, but just cannot use this YEAR_MONTH option.


I am using mysql 3.23.47, is this YEAR_MONTH thing not in this version or am I just doing something totally wrong here?


BTW even tried replacing CURDATE with NOW() and also a manual input of \'2002-12-22\', but all come up with the same error

It exists but your syntax is wrong.


mysql> select extract(year_month FROM curdate());


| extract(year_month FROM curdate()) |


|                             200301 |


1 row in set (0.00 sec)




P., denmark

hmm, entering this into phpmyadmin causes it to fall over.


When I type the query below, it does something very strange!!


SELECT * FROM reservations WHERE extract(year_month FROM date_departure) = extract(year_month FROM \'2002-12-02\')
