Sales stats this week/month/year pointers?

Sales stats this week/month/year pointers?

I am trying to create a basic stats page but not sure how to go about it. I want to pull up sales totals (number of orders and $ value) from eCart

I'm thinking... SELECT * FROM orders WHERE OrderDate <= 'midnight last monday'
Not sure how to describe 'midnight last monday' or 'the first of the month'

Can anybody give me a few pointers please?

SELECT * FROM orders WHERE OrderDate >= DATE_FORMAT(NOW() ,'%Y-%m-01')

Would give you sales from the first day of this month... but really there are a dozen different ways it could be done... for instance:

SELECT * FROM orders WHERE Month(OrderDate) = Month(Now()) AND Year(OrderDate) = Year(Now())

mySQL has quite a few different functions for manipulating dates. Take a look at: date-and-time-functions.html

using those creatively should allow you to do whatever you need to.

Did this help? Tips are appreciated...


Many thanks for that Ray.

I was expecting to do some weird complicated math with a unix timestamp.
I copied and pasted both your suggestions into DataAssist and up popped exactly what I was looking for.
All I had to do was display the results. I had no idea it was going to be that easy.
Oh... I had to change "SELECT * to "SELECT SUM(OrderAmount)"

...Nap time I think!
