Less than operator not working on where clause in mysqldump

by Matthew Singer   Last Updated September 11, 2019 18:06 PM

I am trying to backup some tables with the built in mysqldump function from MariaDb version 10.4. My tables all have a column called insertDateTime with a timestamp in the form of 2019-09-11 12:00:00

Querying one of my tables with the simple statement:

select * from account where insertDateTime < '2019-08-13 18:00:00'

will return a set of rows where that condition matches. However when I run the following code in command prompt no rows are returned in my dumped sql file.

cd c:\Backup_Location

"C:\Program Files\MariaDB 10.4\bin\mysqldump.exe" -u root -p password database account > account.sql --where="insertDateTime < '2019-08-13 18:00:00'"

I have been wracking my brain on why these two statements should return different amounts of rows but am unable to figure out why. Does anyone know why this would be.
