Extracting month from date using Linq

Extracting month from date using Linq


I need help extracting the month from my date column. The date is returned in this format 2012-07-06.

what I would like to do is filter the date based on the month only so return all the data for July etc.

This is what I have

CODE -->

string value = HttpContext.Current.Session["Value "].ToString();
            string Month = "";
            if (value == "1")
                Month = "July";
                Month ="August";
                 var query = from row in dt.AsEnumerable()
                                  where row by row.["Date_Column"] == Month ; <--- Also not sure to use this
                                  where ((row.Field<string>("Date_Column") == Month)) <--or this 

Thanks in advance

RE: Extracting month from date using Linq

try this:


var query = from row in dt.AsEnumerable()
          where row.Field<DateTime>("Date_Column").Month.ToString().Equals(Month) ;
