MySQLMySQLi Database

Let us see the best way to store weekly events in MySQL. For that, first create a new table and include fields for every day as well.

mysql> create table WeeklyEventDemo
   -> (
   -> ID int NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY,
   -> EventName varchar(20),
   -> Monday tinyint(1),
   -> Tuesday tinyint(1),
   -> Wednesday tinyint(1),
   -> Thursday tinyint(1),
   -> Friday tinyint(1),
   -> Saturday tinyint(1),
   -> Sunday tinyint(1),
   -> StartDate date,
   -> EndDate date
   -> );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.55 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command. The query is as follows −

mysql> insert into WeeklyEventDemo(EventName,Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday,Saturday,Sunday,StartDate,EndDate) values('Event-1',0,0,0,0,1,0,0,'2018-03-21','2019-03-08');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.14 sec)
mysql> insert into WeeklyEventDemo(EventName,Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday,Saturday,Sunday,StartDate,EndDate) values('Event-2',0,0,0,0,0,1,0,'2018-03-21','2019-03-08');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.16 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement. The query is as follows −

mysql> select *from WeeklyEventDemo;

The following is the output

+----+-----------+--------+---------+-----------+----------+--------+----------+--------+------------+------------+
| ID | EventName | Monday | Tuesday | Wednesday | Thursday | Friday | Saturday | Sunday | StartDate  | EndDate    |
+----+-----------+--------+---------+-----------+----------+--------+----------+--------+------------+------------+
|  1 | Event-1   | 0      | 0       | 0         | 0        | 1      | 0       | 0       | 2018-03-21 | 2019-03-08 |
|  2 | Event-2   | 0      | 0       | 0         | 0        | 0      | 1       | 0       | 2018-03-21 | 2019-03-08 |
+----+-----------+--------+---------+-----------+----------+--------+----------+--------+------------+------------+
2 rows in set (0.00 sec)
