Get date format DD/MM/YYYY with MySQL Select Query?

MySQLMySQLi Database

Use the STR_TO_DATE() function from MySQL to set a date format for displaying DD/MM/YYYY date. The syntax is as follows −

SELECT STR_TO_DATE(yourColumnName,’%d/%m/%Y) as anyVariableName from yourTableName.

To understand the above syntax, let us create a table −

mysql> create table DateFormatDemo
   −> (
      −> IssueDate varchar(100)
   −> );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.54 sec)

Inserting some string dates into the table. The query to insert date is as follows −

mysql> insert into DateFormatDemo values('26/11/2018');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.14 sec)

mysql> insert into DateFormatDemo values('27/11/2018');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.18 sec)

mysql> insert into DateFormatDemo values('2/12/2018');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.13 sec)

mysql> insert into DateFormatDemo values('3/12/2018');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.14 sec)

Now you can display all dates which I have inserted above. The query is as follows −

mysql> select *from DateFormatDemo;

The following is the output −

+------------+
| IssueDate  |
+------------+
| 26/11/2018 |
| 27/11/2018 |
| 2/12/2018  |
| 3/12/2018  |
+------------+
4 rows in set (0.00 sec)

You can implement the syntax we discussed in the beginning to convert string to date format. The query is as follows −

mysql> select STR_TO_DATE(IssueDate, '%d/%m/%Y') StringToDateFormatExample from DateFormatDemo;

The following is the output −

+---------------------------+
| StringToDateFormatExample |
+---------------------------+
| 2018-11-26                |
| 2018-11-27                |
| 2018-12-02                |
| 2018-12-03                |
+---------------------------+
4 rows in set (0.00 sec)
