I have a table in mysql with a day column with type DATE.
I need to select all the records for Monday. Is there any way to filter records by putting
the day condition on date column. e.g.

select * from mytable where day = SomeTranslationFunction('Sunday');


select * from mytable where day = SomeTranslationFunction('Sunday');

Hi SimonHowald,

try ...

select * from mytable where dayofweek(day) = 2;

the dayofweek() function returns the day of the week as 1 = Sunday, 2 = Monday ...

You could also use the dayname() function.

hi
I do not think there is a problem in adding a function to the query, however you must take into account the output of that function. So you have to be aware of the function you are using.
