MYSQL 5.6.22

  Hello everyone,

     I need help converting a query from MSSQL to MYSQL.  There is a report that needs to run every month on the 25th day that does a count from the 25th of the previous month to the 24th of the current month.

This currently works in MSSQL:

select
(select COUNT (*)
from pacsdb.study
where study_custom1 like '%SITE1%'
and study_datetime >= convert(date, dateadd(month, -1, dateadd(day, 25-day(getdate()), getdate())))
and study_datetime < convert(date, dateadd(day, 25-day(getdate()), getdate()))) as SITE1, 
(select COUNT (*) 
from pacsdb.study
where study_custom1 like '%SITE2%'
and study_datetime >= convert(date, dateadd(month, -1, dateadd(day, 25-day(getdate()), getdate())))
and study_datetime < convert(date, dateadd(day, 25-day(getdate()), getdate()))) as SITE2, 
(select COUNT (*) 
from pacsdb.study
where study_custom1 like '%SITE3%'
and study_datetime >= convert(date, dateadd(month, -1, dateadd(day, 25-day(getdate()), getdate())))
and study_datetime < convert(date, dateadd(day, 25-day(getdate()), getdate()))) as SITE3

  I know that comparing MSSQL to MYSQL is apples & oranges, but I need help with converting the date calculation to function in MYSQL.

The statement above should just come back with three counts, one for each site.  

This will always run on the 25th day of each month.

thanks

maybe this:

where
logdate > date_add(DATE(NOW()), interval -1 month) - 1 and
logdate > date_add(DATE(NOW()), interval -1 day)

or

where
logdate > date_add(date_add(DATE(NOW()), interval -1 month), interval -1 day) and
logdate > date_add(DATE(NOW()), interval -1 day)

Thanks.  This does work as it always goes back one month.  How could it be written if I needed to run this on a different date to ensure that it always counted between the 25th of the prior month & the 24th of the current month?

thanks, this is just what I needed.

I had to change it a bit to get the 25th - the 24th

logdate > date_add(DATE_FORMAT(NOW() ,'%Y-%m-25'), interval -1 month) and
logdate < DATE_FORMAT(NOW() ,'%Y-%m-25')
