Advanced sorting in MySQL to display strings beginning with J at the end even after ORDER BY

MySQLMySQLi Database

For this, use ORDER BY LIKE operator. Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable
(
   Name varchar(100)
);
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.60 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable values('John');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.17 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Adam');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.14 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Chris');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.13 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Jace');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.12 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values('David');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.09 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Sam');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.20 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement −

mysql> select *from DemoTable;

This will produce the following output −

+-------+
| Name  |
+-------+
| John  |
| Adam  |
| Chris |
| Jace  |
| David |
| Sam   |
+-------+
6 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Following is the query to display strings beginning with J at the end even after ORDER BY −

mysql> select *from DemoTable order by Name like '%J%',Name;

This will produce the following output −

+-------+
| Name  |
+-------+
| Adam  |
| Chris |
| David |
| Sam   |
| Jace  |
| John  |
+-------+
6 rows in set (0.00 sec)
