Locating the first day of the month in SQL

Here you'll find a simple way to locate the first day of the month in SQL

I needed to select records for this month so far from the database, which required getting the first day of the current month. After a while, I worked out the following code. To get the prior 12 months, add "- 12 months" after the "+ 1 day" part.
select * from file
where indate >=
date(curdate() - day(curdate()) days + 1 day)
