OK, I created a new db named test with a table named mytable
4 columns

Then I add 3 records and this query shows all 3 rows
SELECT * from mytable

# idmyTable, startDate, endDate, Project
'1', '2011-10-24 10:00:00', '2011-11-24 10:00:00', 'Project A'
'2', '2011-12-24 10:00:00', '2011-12-24 10:00:00', 'Project B'
'2', '2012-01-24 10:00:00', '2012-01-24 10:00:00', 'Project C'

BUT this query doesn't work
(thought it did before but I was looking in wrong place in Output panel)

SELECT DATE_FORMAT(startDate '%d %m %Y'), project FROM myTable;

Here is Output:

20:22:42 SELECT DATE_FORMAT(startDate '%d %m %Y'), project FROM myTable LIMIT 0, 10

Error Code: 1582. Incorrect parameter count in the call to native function 'DATE_FORMAT' 0.000 sec

I'm simply wanting to include the datetime in my query but have it display in Day-Month-Year format

thanks for any help.

PS I just saw query questions maybe should go in this section of the forum. I'll get it right next time.

Thanks again for any help.
