Can we use INTERVAL keyword while inserting date records in a MySQL table?

MySQLMySQLi Database

Yes, we can use INTERVAL while inserting data records. Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable
(
   ArrivalTime datetime
);
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.52 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command. Here, we are using INTERVAL keyword for incrementing the date records while inserting −

mysql> insert into DemoTable values(date_add(now(), interval 4 hour));
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.41 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values(date_add('2016-01-31 10:40:50', interval 2 hour));
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.23 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values(date_add('2015-05-01 12:00:00', interval 1 hour));
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.25 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values(date_add('2017-12-04 08:00:00', interval 9 hour));
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.16 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement −

mysql> select *from DemoTable;

This will produce the following output −

+---------------------+
| ArrivalTime         |
+---------------------+
| 2019-08-13 01:50:10 |
| 2016-01-31 12:40:50 |
| 2015-05-01 13:00:00 |
| 2017-12-04 17:00:00 |
+---------------------+
4 rows in set (0.00 sec)
