SQL DATES

So i'm trying to get from sql query all invoices that has the due date greater than 30 days ( 1 month ) compared to the current date and i ge the following errors

SELECT * from Manager\Models\ProjectInvoices where recurring = 1 and  NOW() >= DATEADD('month',1,due)
SQLSTATE[42000]: Syntax error or access violation: 1305 FUNCTION rhino.DATEADD does not exist

SELECT * from Manager\Models\ProjectInvoices where recurring = 1 and  NOW() >= due + INTERVAL 1 MONTH
Syntax error, unexpected token INTEGER(1), near to ' MONTH', when parsing: SELECT * from Manager\Models\ProjectInvoices where recurring = 1 and NOW() >= due + INTERVAL 1 MONTH (101)

SELECT * from Manager\Models\ProjectInvoices where recurring = 1 and  NOW() >= due + INTERVAL +1 MONTH
Syntax error, unexpected EOF

can anyone help out :?

You have to use RawValue if you want to use MySQL built in functions: https://docs.phalconphp.com/en/latest/api/Phalcon_Db_RawValue.html

Are you craeting your query with QueryBuilder or with ORM ?

Other option is just to use simple $this->db->query() and write plain sql query without using model namespaces.

Phalcon ORM only supports standard SQL syntax by default, and INTERVAL is specific to MySQL.

The common solution is to use a db dialect adapter, here's an example: https://github.com/phalcon/incubator/blob/master/Library/Phalcon/Db/Dialect/MysqlExtended.php

So how do i use it ? , i have composer autoloading all my classses , yet the code given in the documentation says that's not valid

That's just an example, you'll have to place the class in your namespace and use INTERVAL as a function!

    public function getSqlExpression(array $expression, $escapeChar = null, $bindCounts = NULL)
    {
        if ($expression["type"] == 'functionCall') {
            switch ($expression["name"]) {
                case 'DATE_INTERVAL':
                    if (count($expression["arguments"]) != 2) {
                        throw new \Exception('DATE_INTERVAL requires 2 parameters');
                    }
                    $unit = trim($expression["arguments"][1]['value'],"'");
                    switch($unit) {
                        case 'YEAR':
                        case 'MONTH':
                        case 'DAY':
                        case 'HOUR':
                        case 'MINUTE':
                        case 'SECOND':
                            return 'INTERVAL ' . $this->getSqlExpression($expression["arguments"][0]) . ' '.$unit;
                            break;
                    }
                    break;
            }
        }
    }

Usage: SELECT DATE_INTERVAL(2,"YEAR")

Thanks , so i can just input this in my ControllerBase ?

' '.$unit; break; } break; } } } ```

Usage: SELECT DATE_INTERVAL(2,"YEAR")

No obsiously. You need to extend proper class with this method. I guess it's mysql dialect or adapter and use this dialect/adapter in your app. Another option is add extension to dialect.
