Join Bill Weinman for an in-depth discussion in this video Getting parts of a timestamp with EXTRACT, part of PostgreSQL 9 with PHP Essential Training.
Postgres supports the EXTRACT function for extracting parts of dates and times.…For example, we can say SELECT EXTRACT(HOUR FROM TIMESTAMP and give it a timestamp, say.…And when I press Go, it says date part, but it's the hour.…It says 15, which is the hour, which is exactly what we asked for.…If instead I were to say MINUTE, we get one for the MINUTE part or if I were…to just say MONTH, we get 10 for the Month part.…
So this is very convenient.…In fact, we can even do this with intervals.…I can say EXTRACT( MONTH FROM INTERVAL, and then give it an interval, 3 years 2…months, 1 hour, 15 minutes and 2 is the month.…So it extracted the months from the interval.…So this is a useful tool for helping you to do math on different parts of your…dates and times and intervals.…
