Yes, we can combine IN and LIKE operators in MySQL using LIKE and OR operator. Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable
   -> (
   -> SubjectTitle text
   -> );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.68 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Introduction To MySQL');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.11 sec)

mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Java in Depth');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.17 sec)

mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Coding with Python');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.54 sec)

mysql> insert into DemoTable values('C++ in Depth');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.17 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement −

mysql> select *from DemoTable;

This will produce the following output −

+-----------------------+
| SubjectTitle          |
+-----------------------+
| Introduction To MySQL |
| Java in Depth         |
| Coding with Python    |
| C++ in Depth          |
+-----------------------+
4 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Following is the query to use LIKE and OR in a single MySQL query −

mysql> select *from DemoTable where SubjectTitle LIKE '%MySQL%' OR SubjectTitle LIKE'C++%';

This will produce the following output −

+-----------------------+
| SubjectTitle          | 
+-----------------------+
| Introduction To MySQL |
| C++ in Depth          |
+-----------------------+
2 rows in set (0.00 sec)
