Can we use “year” as a column came in a MySQL Table?

MySQLMySQLi Database

Yes, you can give the year as a column name in MySQL table since it isn’t a reserved word. Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable
(
   Year int
);
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.87 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable values(1995);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.15 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values(2019);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.18 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values(2016);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.18 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values(2018);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.13 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement −

mysql> select *from DemoTable;

This will produce the following output −

+------+
| Year |
+------+
| 1995 |
| 2019 |
| 2016 |
| 2018 |
+------+
4 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Following is the query to select “year” named column from MySQL table −

mysql> select year from DemoTable;

This will produce the following output −

+------+
| year |
+------+
| 1995 |
| 2019 |
| 2016 |
| 2018 |
+------+
4 rows in set (0.00 sec)
