MYSQL Select rows where date is older than datetime

I am coding a status item for a website and need to load statuses older than a variable that contains a datetime.

So the database has a field called added date which is a datetime field and I have a string in datetime format and i want to select all rows older than my datetime format string.

How would this be structured in MYSQL?

Thanks in advance.


 select status_column from your_table
 where added_date < '2012-05-12'

mysql DATETIME type is used for values that contain both date and time parts.

Try this

SELECT datecolumn 
FROM table
WHERE datetime_date > '2012-05-12 01-32-56'

try this

$today = date('Y-m-d');

 SELECT column_name FROM table_name WHERE year(added_date) > $today AND month(added_date) > $today
