How to display the column names from a table excluding some in MySQL?


To exclude some of the column names, use NOT IN.

Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable780 (
   CustomerId int,
   CustomerName varchar(100),
   CustomerAge int,
   CustomerCountryName varchar(100),
   isMarried tinyint(1)
);
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.47 sec)

Here is the query to exclude result −

mysql> select group_concat(column_name) from `information_schema`.`COLUMNS` m
   where
   table_schema = 'web' and
   table_name = 'DemoTable780' and
   column_name not in ('CustomerId','CustomerCountryName')
   group by table_schema,table_name;

This will produce the following output -

+------------------------------------+
| group_concat(column_name)          |
+------------------------------------+
| CustomerName,CustomerAge,isMarried |
+------------------------------------+
1 row in set (0.01 sec)
