Hi,
I'm trying to put together a query that as part of the select, it takes the datetime stamp that the row was added  and todays date and returns the number of days that have passed.


Guessing something along the lines of below (just roughing it out to help demonstrate the problem):
DB::raw('(now() - used_vehicles.added) AS num_of_days')

My query so far without the addition (I took out a few additional columns to keep it shorter)
$used_vehicles = DB::table('used_vehicles')
		->select(['used_vehicles.id','used_vehicles.construction_year','used_vehicles.stock_number','used_vehicles.vehicle_price','used_vehicles.discount',DB::raw('(used_vehicles.vehicle_price-used_vehicles.discount) AS selling_price')])
        ->join('dealerships', 'used_vehicles.dealer_id', '=', 'dealerships.id')
        ->join('makes', 'used_vehicles.make_id', '=', 'makes.id')
        ->join('models', 'used_vehicles.model_id', '=', 'models.id')
        ->join('used_vehicles_categories', 'used_vehicles.category_id', '=', 'used_vehicles_categories.id')
        ->where('used_vehicles.added','<',Carbon::now()->subDays($aged))
        ->where($whereClause);
		
		return Datatables::of($used_vehicles)

Open in new window


Any idea how to add the days passed into my select?

Try DATEDIFF


DATEDIFF(used_vehicles.added, CURRDATE())

DB::raw('DATEDIFF(used_vehicles.added, CURRDATE()) AS num_of_days')
