you can use mktime() to do so:
http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.mktime.php
http://php.net/manual/en/function.date.php
$month = date("n");
$year = date("Y");
$this_month_start = mktime(0,0,0, $month, 1, $year);
$next_month_start = mktime(0,0,0, $month + 1, 1, $year);

Open in new window


note, you will use some condition like:
yourvalue >= $this_month_start AND yourvalue < $next_month_start

hope this helps

$start = date('dmY');
$start{0} = '0';
$start{1} = '1';
$endmonth = date('tmY');

how can i format this as YYYY-mm-dd

actually i need to take  month starting and end date to get the 1 month results dynamically..

for example this month,

starting date = 2010-11-01
end date = 2010-11-30

you use date() function again:

$month = date("n");
$year = date("Y");
$this_month_start = mktime(0,0,0, $month, 1, $year);
$next_month_start = mktime(0,0,0, $month + 1, 1, $year);
print date("Y-n-d", $this_month_start);
print date("Y-n-d", $next_month_start);
