    There are several ways to extract the month from a date in SQL, depending on the specific SQL dialect (like MySQL, SQL Server, PostgreSQL, etc.). Below are examples for some common SQL dialects:

    1. MySQL and PostgreSQL:

      SELECT MONTH(date_column) FROM your_table;
      

      This will extract the month as a number (1-12) from date_column in your_table.

    2. SQL Server:

      SELECT DATEPART(month, date_column) FROM your_table;
      

      Similar to the first example, this extracts the month as a number from date_column in your_table.

    3. SQLite:

      SELECT strftime('%m', date_column) FROM your_table;
      

      This uses the strftime function to format the date and extract the month part.

    4. Oracle:

      SELECT EXTRACT(month FROM date_column) FROM your_table;
      

      The EXTRACT function is used to get the month from the date.

    5. General Approach (works in many SQL dialects):

      SELECT EXTRACT(MONTH FROM date_column) FROM your_table;
      

      The EXTRACT function is a standard SQL function and works in several SQL dialects.

    Remember to replace your_table with the actual table name and date_column with the name of the column that contains the date. These examples assume that the date is stored in a proper date or datetime type column. If the date is stored in a different format, additional parsing might be necessary.
