We can also use comparison operators in WHERE clause along with LIKE operator to get specific output. It is demonstrated in the following example −


Suppose we want to get the names end with letter ‘v’ from a table but we do not want a specific name say ‘Gaurav’ in the result set then we need to use comparison operator along with LIKE operator as follows −

mysql> Select * from student where name like '%v'and name != 'gaurav';
| Id   | Name  | Address | Subject | year_of_admission  |
| 2    | Aarav | Mumbai  | History |              2010  |
