To exclude weekends and compare current dates in MySQL, you can use the WEEKDAY() function along with the CURDATE() function.


Here's an example query that demonstrates how to do this:

1
2
3
SELECT * FROM your_table
WHERE WEEKDAY(your_date_column) NOT IN (5, 6) -- Exclude Saturday (5) and Sunday (6)
AND your_date_column >= CURDATE() -- Compare with current date


Replace your_table with the name of your table and your_date_column with the name of the column that contains the date you want to compare.


This query will select all records where the date is not a weekend day (Saturday or Sunday) and is greater or equal to the current date.
