Can we implement 'LIKE' and ‘IN’ in a single MySQL query?


For more efficiency, use Regular Expression for the same task. Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable
   -> (
   -> Name varchar(30)
   -> );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.62 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable values('John');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.13 sec)

mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Chris');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.14 sec)

mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Robert');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.16 sec)

mysql> insert into DemoTable values('David');
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 −

+--------+
| Name   |
+--------+
| John   |
| Chris  |
| Robert |
| David  |
+--------+
4 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Here is the query to implement REGEXP for LIKE and IN alternative −

mysql> select *from DemoTable where Name REGEXP 'John|Robert|David';

This will produce the following output −

+--------+
| Name   |
+--------+
| John   |
| Robert |
| David  |
+--------+
3 rows in set (0.11 sec)
