Mysql query

Hi,

I have a database with a date field. And I would like to see the report
grouped by a ceratin month and year, how can I do that without multiple
queries?

What format is the date field stored in?

Is there a day, month, and year field (separate)?
Is it a timestamp?
Is it something else?

This isn't a MySQL date format.
select * from mydatabase where datefield like "2003-07%";

This works for me.

Mike,

Regarding my Email address, I got so much spam when I posted my Email
address on this forum so I decided not to. Besides, I can't see the
relevancy of my Email to this at all.

Now, what you suggest will choose all the records with the date July/03.
What I need is not to have them selected by the date but grouped by a
certain date. I will give you an example. Suppose I have a 'date' field and
a 'sum' field. What I need is a report about the total sum in each month.
And I wonder what is the most simple way to do it.

Regards,
Albert Ahtenberg

maybe
select year(datefield) , month(datefield ), sum(valuefield)
from table
group by year(datefield) , month(datefield )

You may be wondering why you would want to put your files “into” the database, rather than just onto the file-system. Well, most of the time, you wouldn’t. In situations where your PHP application needs to store entire files, the preferred method is to save the file onto the server’s file-system, and store the physical location of the file in your database. This is generally considered to be the easiest and fastest way to store files. ...
