Query OK, 1 row affected (0.11 sec)
mysql> Select * from year_testing;
+------------+
| OrderDate  |
+------------+
| 2017-10-28 |
+------------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

mysql> Insert into year_testing (OrderDate) Values(NOW());
Query OK, 1 row affected, 1 warning (0.12 sec)

mysql> Select * from year_testing;
