Formatting Date within a MySQL query?

Formatting Date within a MySQL query?

Formatting Date within a MySQL query?

Below is listed a simply query that is integrated within a web page, the
problem I have is that the 3rd  %s I wish to display as the month name, the
data_updated field is a timestamp, I just need a little help on how or where
to put the DATE_FORMAT or MONTHNAME criteria within the query.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


MySQL query__________________________

echo "<table width=100% border=0>\n";

while ($myrow = mysql_fetch_array($result)){

  printf("<tr><td align=left><a href=%s><b><font size=3>%s</font></b></a>
<tr><td align=left><b><i>%s</i></b><td>
  </tr>\n", $myrow["url"], $myrow["headline"],


 echo "</table>\n";
