Hello Experts,

I have a question about mysql, which is new to me.  I have a date formatted field, example 3/1/2014.  I would like to convert this into 2014-03.  It needs to have a padding for single digit months 1-9, to show 01, 02, 03.

I have tried a few ways but nothing works right.

Thank you!


update:  I tried the following:

CONCAT(YEAR(EC.Date), '-', LPAD(MONTH(EC.Date), 2, '0')) as YEAR_MONTH and the output is
323031342d3033

I tried parsing out yr and mo, I get the same ouput:

CONCAT(yr, '-', right(concat('00',mo),2)) AS yr_mo,

Use DATE_FORMAT(ec.date, "%Y-%m")
