In a SQL statement, how do I compare a date saved as TIMESTAMP with a date in YYYY-MM-DD format?
SELECT * FROM table WHERE timestamp = '2012-05-05'
You can use the
DATE() function to extract the date portion of the timestamp:
SELECT * FROM table WHERE DATE(timestamp) = '2012-05-05'
Though, if you have an index on the timestamp column, this would be faster because it could utilize the index:
SELECT * FROM table WHERE timestamp BETWEEN '2012-05-05 00:00:00' AND '2012-05-05 23:59:59'
