MySQL query between 2 dates fields

MySQL query between 2 dates fields

i am trying to create a MySQL query that will take current date and compare it to the 2 date fields that i have in my table and return the rows that satisfy that query.

here is my columns
1- [from_date] which type is Date
2- [to_date] which also holds type Date

the query suppose to return the rows that falls in between those dates.

here is my query

mysql_query("SELECT * FROM location WHERE from_date >= DATE() AND to_date <= DATE()")

my problem is that it doesn’t return anything.
should i switch my column type to DATETIME?

Thanks in advance.

You should use Now() to get the current date of the system.
