Format date in MySQL to return MonthName and Year?

MySQLMySQLi Database

Use DATE_FORMAT() and set the specifiers to display only the MonthName and Year. Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable
(
   Id int NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY,
   AdmissionDate date
);
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.69 sec)

Insert records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable(AdmissionDate) values('2013-04-21');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.18 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable(AdmissionDate) values('2014-01-31');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.20 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable(AdmissionDate) values('2016-09-01');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.12 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable(AdmissionDate) values('2018-12-12');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.11 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable(AdmissionDate) values('2019-04-01');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.15 sec)

Display records from the table using select command −

mysql> select *from DemoTable;

This will produce the following output −

+----+---------------+
| Id | AdmissionDate |
+----+---------------+
| 1  | 2013-04-21    |
| 2  | 2014-01-31    |
| 3  | 2016-09-01    |
| 4  | 2018-12-12    |
| 5  | 2019-04-01    |
+----+---------------+
5 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Here is the query to format date in MySQL to return MonthName and Year −

mysql> select DATE_FORMAT(AdmissionDate,'%M %Y') AS MonthNameAndYear FROM DemoTable;

This will produce the following output −

+------------------+
| MonthNameAndYear |
+------------------+
| April 2013       |
| January 2014     |
| September 2016   |
| December 2018    |
| April 2019       |
+------------------+
5 rows in set (0.02 sec)
