In MySQL, you can convert a month to different formats using the DATE_FORMAT function.


Here are a few examples:

  1. Convert month to full month name:
1
SELECT DATE_FORMAT(your_date_column, '%M') as month_name FROM your_table;


This will return the full name of the month in the format like "January", "February", etc.

  1. Convert month to abbreviated month name:
1
SELECT DATE_FORMAT(your_date_column, '%b') as month_name FROM your_table;


This will return the abbreviated name of the month in the format like "Jan", "Feb", etc.

  1. Convert month to month number:
1
SELECT DATE_FORMAT(your_date_column, '%c') as month_number FROM your_table;


This will return the month number in the format like "1" for January, "2" for February, etc.


Make sure to replace "your_date_column" with the actual column name from your table and "your_table" with the actual table name.
