How to get records from last 7 days

Here’s the SQL query to get records from last 7 days in MySQL.

mysql> select * from sales
     where order_date > now() - INTERVAL 7 day;
+------------+------+
| order_date | sale |
+------------+------+
| 2020-06-05 |  200 |
| 2020-06-06 |  260 |
| 2020-06-07 |  270 |
| 2020-06-08 |  240 |

| 2020-06-10 |  230 |
| 2020-06-11 |  210 |
+------------+------+

In the above query we select those records where order_date falls after a past interval of 7 days. We use system function now() to get the latest datetime value, and INTERVAL clause to calculate a date 7 days in the past.

You can also use current_date instead of now()

mysql> select * from sales
     where order_date > current_date - interval 7 day;
