Convert varchar to unsigned integer in MySQL

MySQLMySQLi Database

To convert varchar to unsigned integer, use CAST() function. Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable868(Amount varchar(100));
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.51 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable868 values('781');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.18 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable868 values('990');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.25 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable868 values('1002');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.17 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable868 values('560');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.12 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable868 values('890');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.26 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable868 values('9890');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.06 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable868 values('8723');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.16 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement −

mysql> select *from DemoTable868;

This will produce the following output −

+--------+
| Amount |
+--------+
| 781    |
| 990    |
| 1002   |
| 560    |
| 890    |
| 9890   |
| 8723   |
+--------+
7 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Following is the query to convert varchar to unsigned integer −

mysql> select cast(Amount as unsigned) AS Amount from DemoTable868 order by Amount DESC;

This will produce the following output −

+--------+
| Amount |
+--------+
| 9890   |
| 8723   |
| 1002   |
| 990    |
| 890    |
| 781    |
| 560    |
+--------+
7 rows in set (0.01 sec)
