How can I make a table in MySQL called “order”?

MySQLMySQLi Database

As you know, order is a keyword in MySQL, you cannot give table name order directly. You need to use backtick around the table name order. Backtick allow a user to consider the keyword as table or column name.

The syntax is as follows

CREATE TABLE `order`
(
   yourColumnName1 dataType,
   yourColumnName2 dataType,
   yourColumnName3 dataType,
   .
   .
   .
   .
   N
);

Let us create a table. The query to create a table is as follows

mysql> create table `order`
   - > (
   - > Id int,
   - > Price int
   - > );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.66 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command.

The query is as follows

mysql> insert into `order` values(1,200);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.21 sec)
mysql> insert into `order` values(2,100);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.17 sec)
mysql> insert into `order` values(3,300);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.20 sec)
mysql> insert into `order` values(4,1200);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.13 sec)
mysql> insert into `order` values(5,1000);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.18 sec)
mysql> insert into `order` values(6,7000);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.20 sec)
mysql> insert into `order` values(7,900);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.16 sec)
mysql> insert into `order` values(8,10000);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.18 sec)
mysql> insert into `order` values(9,1100);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.30 sec)
mysql> insert into `order` values(10,500);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.18 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement.

The query is as follows

mysql> select *from `order`;

The following is the output

+------+-------+
| Id   | Price |
+------+-------+
|    1 |   200 |
|    2 |   100 |
|    3 |   300 |
|    4 |  1200 |
|    5 |  1000 |
|    6 |  7000 |
|    7 |   900 |
|    8 | 10000 |
|    9 |  1100 |
|   10 |   500 |
+------+-------+
10 rows in set (0.00 sec)

If you do not use backtick symbol around the table name set as a keyword, you will get an error.

The error is as follows

mysql> select *from order;
ERROR 1064 (42000): You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that
corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'order' at line 1

Therefore, to fix this error and use a keyword as table or column name, you need to use backtick symbol around the name.
