Format date to display month names with the entire date in MySQL?

MySQLMySQLi Database

For this, you can use DATE_FORMAT(). Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable605 (DueDate date);
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.57 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable605 values('2019-01-21');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.21 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable605 values('2019-02-23');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.11 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable605 values(curdate());
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.15 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement −

mysql> select *from DemoTable605;

This will produce the following output −

+------------+
| DueDate    |
+------------+
| 2019-01-21 |
| 2019-02-23 |
| 2019-03-04 |
| 2019-04-24 |
| 2019-07-13 |
+------------+
5 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Following is the query to format date and display month names with the entire date in MySQL −

mysql> select DATE_FORMAT(DueDate, '%d.%M.%Y') from DemoTable605;

This will produce the following output −

+----------------------------------+
| DATE_FORMAT(DueDate, '%d.%M.%Y') |
+----------------------------------+
| 21.January.2019                  |
| 23.February.2019                 |
| 04.March.2019                    |
| 24.April.2019                    |
| 13.July.2019                     |
+----------------------------------+
