Setup the format of DATETIME to 'DDMM- YYYY HH:MM:SS' with MySQL SELECT?

MySQLMySQLi Database

Whenever you retrieve datetime from a table, the datetime gives ‘YYYY-MM-DD’ format. If you want to change the output, then you need to use in-built date_format() from MySQL.

The syntax is as follows −

SELECT DATE_FORMAT(yourDatetimeColumnName,yourFormat) as anyVariableName from
yourTableName;

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

mysql> create table UserDateFormat
   -> (
   -> ProductId int,
   -> ProductDeliverDate datetime
   -> );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.93 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command. The query is as follows −

mysql> insert into UserDateFormat values(100,date_add(now(),interval 1 year));
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.10 sec)

mysql> insert into UserDateFormat values(101,date_add(now(),interval -1 year));
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.48 sec)

mysql> insert into UserDateFormat values(102,date_add(now(),interval -3 year));
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.17 sec)

mysql> insert into UserDateFormat values(103,date_add(now(),interval -2 year));
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.20 sec)

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

mysql> select *from UserDateFormat;

Output

+-----------+---------------------+
| ProductId | ProductDeliverDate  |
+-----------+---------------------+
|       100 | 2019-12-24 13:32:47 |
|       101 | 2017-12-24 13:32:58 |
|       102 | 2015-12-24 13:33:08 |
|       103 | 2016-12-24 13:33:17 |
+-----------+---------------------+
4 rows in set (0.00 sec)

The above datetime format is from MySQL datetime. Now you can format datetime accordingly, which includes the ‘DD-MM-YYYY’ format as well.

The query is as follows −

mysql> select date_format(ProductDeliverDate,'%d-%m-%Y %h:%i:%s') as UserFormat from
UserDateFormat;

The following is the output displaying date in the DD-MM-YYYY format −

+----------------------+
| UserFormat           |
+----------------------+
| 24-12-2019 01:32:47  |
| 24-12-2017 01:32:58  |
| 24-12-2015 01:33:08  |
| 24-12-2016 01:33:17  |
+----------------------+
4 rows in set (0.00 sec)

You can get the above time format in 24 hours. The query is as follows −

mysql> select date_format(ProductDeliverDate,'%d-%m-%Y %H:%i:%S') as UserFormat
from UserDateFormat;

Output

+----------------------+
| UserFormat           |
+----------------------+
| 24-12-2019 13:32:47  |
| 24-12-2017 13:32:58  |
| 24-12-2015 13:33:08  |
| 24-12-2016 13:33:17  |
+----------------------+
4 rows in set (0.00 sec)
