My query for this is as follows: select * from table where table.date1 -
table.date2 between 28425600 and 29030400;
I would not count on that subtraction s yielding a meaningful number: the types are not Unix timestamps. I would use TIMESTAMPDIFF, with a good unit.
From the downloaded help file:
Date arithmetic also can be performed using INTERVAL together with the <file:///C:/Program%20Files/MySQL/MySQL%20Server%205.1/HELP/functions.html#operator_plus>+ or <file:///C:/Program%20Files/MySQL/MySQL%20Server%205.1/HELP/functions.html#operator_minus>- operator:
date + INTERVAL expr unit
date - INTERVAL expr unit
but subtracting timestamp from timestamp hoping for a while (interval) is not mentioned.
If you want the subtraction to work, make them big integers and use UNIX_TIMESTAMP and FROM_UNIXTIME. See
