Is there a built-in function for week of the month in MySQL?

MySQLMySQLi Database

There is no standard function to get week of month in MySQL. You need to use the following syntax −

SELECT WEEK(yourDateColumnName, 5) -
WEEK(DATE_SUB(yourDateColumnName, INTERVAL DAYOFMONTH(yourDateColumnName) - 1 DAY), 5) + 1 AS anyAliasName FROM yourTableName;

To understand the above syntax, let us create a table. The query to create a table is as follows −

mysql> create table FirstWeekOfMonth
   -> (
   -> Id int NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT primary key,
   -> yourdate date
   -> );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (2.50 sec)

Now you can insert some records in the table using INSERT command. The query is as follows −

mysql> insert into FirstWeekOfMonth(yourdate) values('2019-01-18');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.20 sec)
mysql> insert into FirstWeekOfMonth(yourdate) values('2019-04-19');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.19 sec)
mysql> insert into FirstWeekOfMonth(yourdate) values('2019-05-20');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.10 sec)
mysql> insert into FirstWeekOfMonth(yourdate) values('2019-12-31');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.19 sec)
mysql> insert into FirstWeekOfMonth(yourdate) values('2019-10-05');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.12 sec)
mysql> insert into FirstWeekOfMonth(yourdate) values('2019-08-25');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.16 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement. The query is as follows −

mysql> select *from FirstWeekOfMonth;

The following is the output −

+----+------------+
| Id | yourdate   |
+----+------------+
|  1 | 2019-01-18 |
|  2 | 2019-04-19 |
|  3 | 2019-05-20 |
|  4 | 2019-12-31 |
|  5 | 2019-10-05 |
|  6 | 2019-08-25 |
+----+------------+
6 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Here is the query to get the week of the month −

mysql> SELECT WEEK(yourdate, 5) -
   -> WEEK(DATE_SUB(yourdate, INTERVAL DAYOFMONTH(yourdate) - 1 DAY), 5) + 1 as FirstWeekDemo from FirstWeekOfMonth;

The following is the output −

+---------------+
| FirstWeekDemo |
+---------------+
|             3 |
|             3 |
|             4 |
|             6 |
|             1 |
|             4 |
+---------------+
6 rows in set (0.00 sec)
