How to query between two dates in MySQL?

MySQLMySQLi Database

You can query between dates with the help of BETWEEN statement. The syntax is as follows −

select *from yourTableName where yourColumnName between ‘yourStartingDate’ and curdate().

Use curdate() or now(), both these functions will work. To understand the above syntax, let us create a table −

mysql> create table BetweenDateDemo
   −> (
   −> StartDate datetime
   −> );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.78 sec)

Insert some records in the table with the help of the following query −

mysql> insert into BetweenDateDemo values(date_add(now(),interval -1 year));
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.11 sec)

mysql> insert into BetweenDateDemo values(date_add(now(),interval -2 year));
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.13 sec)

mysql> insert into BetweenDateDemo values(date_add(now(),interval -3 year));
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.13 sec)

mysql> insert into BetweenDateDemo values(date_add(now(),interval 1 year));
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.12 sec)

mysql> insert into BetweenDateDemo values(date_add(now(),interval 2 year));
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.12 sec)

mysql> insert into BetweenDateDemo values(date_add(now(),interval 3 year));
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.16 sec)

Now you can display all records from the table with the help of select statement. The query is as follows −

mysql> select *from BetweenDateDemo;

The following is the output −

+---------------------+
| StartDate           |
+---------------------+
| 2017-12-08 11:45:47 |
| 2016-12-08 11:45:56 |
| 2015-12-08 11:46:01 |
| 2019-12-08 11:46:05 |
| 2020-12-08 11:46:11 |
| 2021-12-08 11:46:15 |
+---------------------+
6 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Now perform select between dates using the syntax discussed above −

mysql> select *from BetweenDateDemo where StartDate between '2014-8-12' and curdate();

The following is the output −

+---------------------+
| StartDate           |
+---------------------+
| 2017-12-08 11:45:47 |
| 2016-12-08 11:45:56 |
| 2015-12-08 11:46:01 |
+---------------------+
3 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Use ORDER BY to get in a sorted order. The query is as follows −

mysql> select *from BetweenDateDemo where StartDate between '2014-8-12' and curdate() order by StartDate;

The following is the output −

+---------------------+
| StartDate           |
+---------------------+
| 2015-12-08 11:46:01 |
| 2016-12-08 11:45:56 |
| 2017-12-08 11:45:47 |
+---------------------+
3 rows in set (0.00 sec)
