MySQL query to select all entries from a particular month

MySQLMySQLi Database

To select all entries from a particular month in MySQL, use the monthname() or month() function.

The syntax is as follows.

select *from yourTableName where monthname(yourColumnName)='yourMonthName';

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

mysql> create table selectAllEntriesDemo
   -> (
   -> Id int NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY,
   -> ShippingDate datetime
   -> );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.63 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command.

The query is as follows

mysql> insert into selectAllEntriesDemo(ShippingDate) values('2019-01-21');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.24 sec)
mysql> insert into selectAllEntriesDemo(ShippingDate) values('2018-02-24');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.15 sec)
mysql> insert into selectAllEntriesDemo(ShippingDate) values('2010-10-22');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.20 sec)
mysql> insert into selectAllEntriesDemo(ShippingDate) values('2011-04-12');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.12 sec)
mysql> insert into selectAllEntriesDemo(ShippingDate) values('2013-02-10');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.18 sec)
mysql> insert into selectAllEntriesDemo(ShippingDate) values('2014-02-15');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.16 sec)
mysql> insert into selectAllEntriesDemo(ShippingDate) values('2016-06-14');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.18 sec)
mysql> insert into selectAllEntriesDemo(ShippingDate) values('2017-02-14');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.51 sec)
mysql> insert into selectAllEntriesDemo(ShippingDate) values('2015-03-29');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.19 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement.

The query is as follows.

mysql> select *from selectAllEntriesDemo;

The following is the output.

| Id | ShippingDate        |
+----+---------------------+
