How to part DATE and TIME from DATETIME in MySQL?

MySQLMySQLi Database

To part DATE and TIME from DATETIME, you can use the DATE_FORMAT() method from MySQL. The syntax is as follows −

SELECT DATE_FORMAT(yourColumnName, '%Y-%m-%d') VariableName, DATE_FORMAT(yourColumnName,'%H:%i:%s') VariableName from yourTableName;

To understand the above method DATE_FORMAT(), let us create a table with data type “datetime”.

Creating a table −

mysql> create table DateAndTimePartDemo
   -> (
   -> YourDateandtime datetime
   -> );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.56 sec)

Now, I am inserting current date and time using now(). The query is as follows −

mysql> insert into DateAndTimePartDemo values(now());
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.37 sec)

Display the record with the help of select statement. The query is as follows −

mysql> select *from DateAndTimePartDemo;

The following is the output that displays current date and time −

+---------------------+
| YourDateandtime     |
+---------------------+
| 2018-11-24 13:40:36 |
+---------------------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

Let us now part the above datetime with the help of DATE_FORMAT() function.

The query is as follows −

mysql> SELECT DATE_FORMAT(YourDateandtime, '%Y-%m-%d') OnlyYourDate,
-> DATE_FORMAT(YourDateandtime,'%H:%i:%s') OnlyYourTime from DateAndTimePartDemo;

The following is the output −

+--------------+--------------+
| OnlyYourDate | OnlyYourTime |
+--------------+--------------+
| 2018-11-24   | 13:40:36     |
+--------------+--------------+
1 row in set (0.03 sec)
