Hi, folks,

Can someone insight me regarding this?

I have a datetime field in mySQL (yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss) called event_time

I want to pull records hitting against this field with the idea:

where the abbreviated month from this field LIKE '$month'

and here's the SQL string I've been playing with. It works when I comment
out the line that tries to do the above with a subquery.

$strSQL = "SELECT DATE_FORMAT(event_time, '%M %e %Y, %l:%i %p'), bandname,
image ";
$strSQL .= "FROM doings, styles ";
$strSQL .= "WHERE style = musicstyle ";
$strSQL .= "AND bandname LIKE '$artist' ";
$strSQL .= "AND style LIKE '$style' ";
$strSQL .= "AND (SELECT DATE_FORMAT(event_time, '%b') FROM doings) LIKE
'$month' ";
$strSQL .= "ORDER BY event_time";
echo "$strSQL<BR>";

$month will be carrying the three-character short version of the alpha month

I don't think it likes my subquery, though I like it just fine.
