Select data between a date range

Questions:

How do I select data between a date range in MySQL. My datetime column is in 24-hour zulu time format.

select * from hockey_stats 
where game_date between '11/3/2012 00:00:00' and '11/5/2012 23:59:00' 
order by game_date desc;

Returns nothing despite having data between these time periods. Do I have to force the values in the ‘from’ and ‘to’ fields to datetime type in the query?

You need to update the date format:

select * from hockey_stats 
where game_date between '2012-03-11 00:00:00' and '2012-05-11 23:59:00' 
order by game_date desc;

Here is a simple way using the date function:

select *
from hockey_stats
where date(game_date) between date('2012-11-03') and date('2012-11-05')
order by game_date desc

You probably need to use STR_TO_DATE function:

select * from hockey_stats 
where
  game_date between STR_TO_DATE('11/3/2012 00:00:00', '%c/%e/%Y %H:%i:%s')
                and STR_TO_DATE('11/5/2012 23:59:00', '%c/%e/%Y %H:%i:%s') 
order by game_date desc;

(if game_date is a string, you might need to use STR_TO_DATE on it)

MySQL date format is this : Y-M-D. You are using Y/M/D. That’s is wrong.
modify your query.

If you insert the date like Y/M/D, It will be insert null value in the database.

If you are using PHP and date you are getting from the form is like this Y/M/D, you can replace this with using the statement .

out_date=date('Y-m-d', strtotime(str_replace('/', '-', $data["input_date"])))
