Using MICROSECOND in MySQL

Using MICROSECOND in MySQL

By default, developers work with time up to the level of seconds, i.e. HOURS, MINUTES and SECONDS. There could be instances in which we may want to work on the MICROSECOND level as well.

The example below illustrates the usage of MICROSECOND in TIME.

Query:

SELECT MICROSECOND(NOW(3));

Note: NOW takes an argument between 0 to 6 and the precision of the value is based on this argument.

Sample output:

+---------------------+| MICROSECOND(NOW(3)) |+---------------------+|              176000 |+---------------------+
