MySQL strip time component from datetime?

MySQLMySQLi Database

You can strip time component from datetime with the help of DATE() function. The syntax is as follows −

SELECT DATE(yourColumnName) from yourTableName;

To understand the above concept, let us first create a table −

mysql> create table StripComponentDatetimeDemo
   -> (
   -> YourDateTime datetime
   -> );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.60 sec)

Let us now insert some records in the table. The query is as follows −

mysql> insert into StripComponentDatetimeDemo values(date_add(now(),interval 1 day));
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.13 sec)

Display records with the help of select statement. The query is as follows displaying datetime −

mysql> select *from StripComponentDatetimeDemo;

The following is the output −

+---------------------+
| YourDateTime        |
+---------------------+
| 2018-11-25 20:15:07 |
+---------------------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

The following is the query that strips time component −

mysql> SELECT DATE(YourDateTime) from StripComponentDatetimeDemo;

The following is the output −

+--------------------+
| DATE(YourDateTime) |
+--------------------+
| 2018-11-25         |
+--------------------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)
