How to insert date in single quotes with MySQL date formats?

MySQLMySQLi Database

To insert the date with date formats, use the str_to_date() function with date in single quotes. The following is the syntax −

insert into yourTableName values(Value1,value2,......ValueN,str_to_date(‘anyDate’,’%Y-%m-%d’));

Here are the Date Formats in MySQL −

%DDay of the month as a numeric value, followed by suffix (1st, 2nd, 3rd, ...)
%dDay of the month as a numeric value (01 to 31)
%eDay of the month as a numeric value (0 to 31)
%fMicroseconds (000000 to 999999)
%HHour (00 to 23)
%hHour (00 to 12)

Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table BookDateDemo
   −> (
      −> BookName varchar(200),
      −> BookIssueDate datetime
   −> );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.44 sec)

Now implement the syntax we discussed above to insert date with MySQL date format. Here we have set the date in single quote −

mysql> insert into BookDateDemo values('Let us C',str_to_date('2018-11-28','%Y-%m-%d'));
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.11 sec)

mysql> insert into BookDateDemo values('The C++ Programming',str_to_date('2018-11-29','%Y-%m-%d'));
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.16 sec)

mysql> insert into BookDateDemo values('C in Depth',str_to_date('2018-11-20','%Y-%m-%d'));
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.23 sec)

Display all records with the help of select statement. The query to display all records are as follows −

mysql> select *from BookDateDemo;

The following is the output −

+---------------------+---------------------+
| BookName            | BookIssueDate       |
+---------------------+---------------------+
| Let us C            | 2018-11-28 00:00:00 |
| The C++ Programming | 2018-11-29 00:00:00 |
| C in Depth          | 2018-11-20 00:00:00 |
+---------------------+---------------------+
3 rows in set (0.00 sec)
