Hi, is it possible that a printed output from an of statement can be placed in an mysql Column. That column num insert the value: you have to pay 5% taxes or you not have to pay taxes.

num = 10
if 5 <= num <= 15:
    print ("you have to pay 5% taxes")
	print ("you not have to pay taxes")

SELECT *, FROM Customers

What I have tried:

I tried to converte the id statement in num= but that doesn’t work.

Not your question, but I suspect an error here :
Your if condition is rather uncommon and unsupported in most languages
num = 10
if 5 <= num <= 15:

Try this instead :
num = 10
if 5 <= num and num <= 15:

My bad.

No, the original statement is valid in Python. See 6. Expressions — Python 3.10.5 documentation[^].

Thank you for this information.

Don't you just love Python? :)

Never used it :)
What statement are you referring to? If you want the printed output to be inserted in your database then you use an INSERT statement not a SELECT. Something like:
statement = "you not have to pay taxes"
num = 10
if 5 <= num <= 15:
    statement = "you have to pay 5% taxes"

cursor.execute('INSERT INTO Customers (tax) VALUES (%s)', statement)

Yes I use the insert statement down under in my script to insert the value into sql

So what are you saying? Does it work or not? And if not please use the Improve question link above, and add complete details of the code, and what is not working.

Yes, the script is working thank you alot. But how can i make this work. Because every date above 2020-03-01 is "voorjaarsvakantie" but it is not a vacation

date_purchase = "2020-0-01"
date_vacation = "Voorjaarsvakantie"
if "2020-02-15" >= date_purchase <= "2020-03-01":
date_vacation = "No vacation"
Richard MacCutchan 8-Jun-22 11:04am    
As far as I can see that is the same issue as the original question. THeonly issue is that you may need to convert the dates into actual date objects, as described at datetime — Basic date and time types — Python 3.10.5 documentation[^].
Megan van Bommel 8-Jun-22 11:05am    
Yes i did that but this an example
# "date" dimension
    date_string = str(dim_date["purchase_date"])

    # Covert 01/01/2020 to SQL date 2020-01-01
    date_purchase = datetime.datetime.strptime(date_string, '%m/%d/%Y').strftime('%Y-%m-%d')
    date_vacation = "No vacation"
    date_week = datetime.datetime.strptime(date_string, '%m/%d/%Y').strftime('%W')
    date_month = datetime.datetime.strptime(date_string, '%m/%d/%Y').strftime('%m')
    if "2020-02-15" <= date_purchase and "2020-03-01" >= date_purchase :
        date_vacation = "Voorjaarsvakantie"
    print (date_purchase, date_vacation, date_week, date_month)
    SELECT * FROM dim_date
    WHERE date_purchase = '"""+date_purchase+"""'
    AND date_vacation = '"""+date_vacation+""""'
    AND date_week = '"""+date_week+""""'
    OR date_month = '"""+date_month+""""'

Is this the solution to your problem? if not then please remove it and use the Improve question link above, and add complete details of what is not working.
