mysql: get record count between two date-time

I am stuck with a problem in MySQL. I want to get the count of records between two date-time entries.

For example:

I have a column in my table named 'created' having the

datetime
data type.

I want to count records which were created date-time between "TODAY'S 4:30 AM" and "CURRENT DATE TIME".

I tried some of MySQL's functions but still no luck with it.

Can you please help me with this?
thanks.

Answer

May be with:

SELECT count(*) FROM `table` 
where 
    created_at>='2011-03-17 06:42:10' and created_at<='2011-03-17 06:42:50';

or use between:

SELECT count(*) FROM `table` 
where 
    created_at between '2011-03-17 06:42:10' and '2011-03-17 06:42:50';

You can change the datetime as per your need. May be use curdate() or now() to get the desired dates.
