MySQL format time with lowercase am/pm?

MySQLMySQLi Database

To format MySQL time with lowercase am/pm, use the LOWER() as well as DATE_FORMAT().Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table formatTime
   -> (
   -> LoginTime time
   -> );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.56 sec)

Following is the query to insert records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into formatTime values('12:40:34');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.20 sec)

mysql> insert into formatTime values('14:10:58');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.13 sec)

mysql> insert into formatTime values('16:56:40');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.18 sec)

mysql> insert into formatTime values('10:12:14');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.16 sec)

Following is the query to display all records from the table using select statement −

mysql> select * from formatTime;

This will produce the following output −

+-----------+
| LoginTime |
+-----------+
| 12:40:34  |
| 14:10:58  |
| 16:56:40  |
| 10:12:14  |
+-----------+
4 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Following is the query to format MySQL time with lowercase am/pm −

mysql> select LOWER(DATE_FORMAT(LoginTime,'%l:%i %p')) from formatTime;

This will produce the following output −

+------------------------------------------+
| LOWER(DATE_FORMAT(LoginTime,'%l:%i %p')) |
+------------------------------------------+
| 12:40 pm                                 |
| 2:10 pm                                  |
| 4:56 pm                                  |
| 10:12 am                                 |
+------------------------------------------+
4 rows in set (0.04 sec)
