Can we use “LIKE concat()” in a MySQL query?

MySQLMySQLi Database

Yes, we can do that. Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable
(
   Name varchar(50)
);
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.63 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable values('John');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.14 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Adam');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.18 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Bob');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.09 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Mike');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.16 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement −

mysql> select *from DemoTable;

This will produce the following output −

+------+
| Name |
+------+
| John |
| Adam |
| Bob  |
| Mike |
+------+
4 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Following is the query to use “LIKE concat()” in MySQL −

mysql> select Name from DemoTable where Name LIKE concat('%','o','%');

This will produce the following output −

+------+
| Name |
+------+
| John |
| Bob  |
+------+
2 rows in set (0.03 sec)
