Retrieving only month needed?

I am creating an event calendar and what it to display the current month of events but I would also like to be able to click on a month name (so July for eample) and have a page generated that displays all of Julys events.

What is the best way to store the date (when entering event dates) in order to achieve this?

Also to keep in mind, once June is over, all of Junes old events must be archived.  Either into a mySQL table or into a text file.

use MySQL!

let's say your table is as follow:

CREATE TABLE tbl_name (event_name CHAR(20), event_desc CHAR(255), date DATE)


you could select only july event with:

SELECT * FROM tbl_name WHERE MONTH(date) = 6

So inserting would be done how?  These dates are entered so they are not always NOW()

well..

<?
$date = "2001-05-15"; // for may 15th

$link = mysql_connect($SQLHost, $SQLUser, $SQLPassword) OR DIE ("Unable To Connect To Database");
     mysql_select_db($SQLDatabase, $link) OR DIE("Unable To Select To Database");
     $sql="INSERT INTO tbl_name VALUES('$event_name', '$event_desc', '$date')";
     $result = mysql_query($sql);
mysql_close($link);

?>

you can get the date from a form.. with 3 select (1 for day, 1 for month, 1 for year)
