Php and my sql dates

Recommended Posts

Hi all.
Really need some help with this! I have an events database where event details are stored. The date is stored in teh format yyyy/mm/dd. I have a script that reads all events from the database and echos them out onto a new sheet. Thing is I need it only to display 2 weeks worth of event... meaning showing all events taht take ;place within the next 2 weeks from the curretn date. The current script i ahve is:

$conn = mysql_connect();
$counter =0;
$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM events ORDER BY eventdate");
while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
if ($counter>0){
echo"<p> The following event take place within the next 2 weeks:</p><table>";
echo "<tr><td colspan='4'><hr></hr></td></tr>";
$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM events ORDER BY Eventdate");
while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
echo "<tr><td><em>Name: </em> $row[name]</td>";
echo "<td><em>Date (yyyy-mm-dd): </em> $row[eventdate]</td>";
echo "<td><em>Tickets: </em> $row[maxtickets]</td>";
echo "<td><em>Price: </em> $row[price]</td>";
echo "</tr><tr><td colspan='1'><em>Tickets remaining: </em> $row[remintickets]</td>";
echo "<td colspan='3'><em>Description: </em> $row[description]</td></tr>";
echo "<tr><td colspan='4'><hr></hr></td></tr>";

This works but just need some help to load only 2 weeks worth of stuff. PLEASE HELP!

Here is some info regarding using mysql's date functions. With a little tweaking it will accomplish what you need.

Change how the field is defined in MySQL to be of the type "date", then you can use the query as posted by shocker-z.
