How to conduct an Accent Sensitive search in MySQL?

MySQLMySQLi Database

To conduct an Accent sensitive search in MySQL, we can use collation with utf8_bin. Here is the syntax to conduct accent sensitive search −

yourColumName dataType collate utf8_bin;

Apply the above syntax to conduct accent sensitive search. First, let us create a table −

mysql> create table AccentSearchDemo
   -> (
   -> Id varchar(100) collate utf8_bin
   -> );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.51 sec)

Inserting three records into the table −

mysql> insert into AccentSearchDemo values('John123');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.31 sec)
mysql> insert into AccentSearchDemo values('Smith123');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.15 sec)
mysql> insert into AccentSearchDemo values('123John');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.11 sec)

Now we can display all the records with the help of SELECT statement. The query is as follows −

mysql> select *from AccentSearchDemo;

Here is the output −

+----------+
| Id       |
+----------+
| John123  |
| Smith123 |
| 123John  |
+----------+
3 rows in set (0.00 sec)
