Find the records with % character in a LIKE query with MySQL

MySQLMySQLi Database

Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable742 (Value varchar(100));
Query OK, 0 rows affected (2.91 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable742 values('632535MIT');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.23 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable742 values('US%UK');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.13 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable742 values('56%78');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.18 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable742 values('%_1234');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.09 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement −

mysql> select *from DemoTable742;

This will produce the following output -

+-----------+
| Value     |
+-----------+
| 632535MIT |
| US%UK     |
| 56%78     |
| %_1234    |
+-----------+
4 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Following is the query to find records with % character using LIKE query −

mysql> select *from DemoTable742 where Value LIKE '%\%%';

This will produce the following output -

+--------+
| Value  |
+--------+
| US%UK  |
| 56%78  |
| %_1234 |
+--------+
3 rows in set (0.00 sec)
