    Question How to select data 1 day before...

    Hi folks,

    This has got me scratching my head. I'm trying to select data 1 day before the expiry date, but too no avail.

    Here's my code (by the way, I'm using MySQL client version: 5.0.27 on my PC and MySQL client version: 4.1.21 on the web server):

    Code:
    $endresult = mysql_query(" SELECT photo_id, photo_caption, photo_category FROM gallery_photos WHERE photo_expire_date =  DATE_SUB(CURDATE(),INTERVAL -1 DAY) ");
    The dates are placed as for example: 2007-02-17 into the database.

    Any ideas where I'm going wrong?

    Cheers,

    Spence

    what does "no avail" mean? does your query run? does it produce a syntax error?

    by the way, you realize that subtracting -1 day is the same as adding 1 day, right?

    Don't worry about what does "no avail" means.

    As for any errors, no.

    And yes I do.

    In the end (I got it too work) it was Xampp and Dreamweaver playing up on my PC.

    Thank you for your time Rudy,

    spence
