MySQL Time Difference BUG

Not sure if this is a bug or not.

I am doing a sql query for time difference using the TIMEDIFF function.

It works for all other but not when not when you are doing a time difference for start time 23:00:00 (11 PM night) and end time 00:30:00 (12 AM Midnight)

if you take a look, the difference is 1.5 hours, but the sql tells me that the difference is 22 hours, 30 minutes

Any solution to this?

Re: MySQL Time Difference BUG
That means it takes the date into account and assumes the same day.

Re: MySQL Time Difference BUG
Logically what MySQL returns is correct, 00 hr onwards is next day, so you must include the date part!

Code: SQL

SELECT timediff('2009-05-28 11:30:00','2009-05-28 00:30:00')



All times are GMT +5.5. The time now is 21:09.
