How to escape '%' character on the left and middle part of strings in a MySQL column?

MySQLMySQLi Database

Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable629 (StudentId int NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY,StudentSubject text);
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.77 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable629(StudentSubject) values('MySQL%');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.15 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable629(StudentSubject) values('Spring%Hibernate');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.16 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable629(StudentSubject) values('%Java');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.21 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement −

mysql> select *from DemoTable629;

This will produce the following output −

+-----------+------------------+
| StudentId | StudentSubject   |
+-----------+------------------+
|         1 | MySQL%           |
|         2 | Spring%Hibernate |
|         3 | %Java            |
+-----------+------------------+
3 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Following is the query to escape '%' character −

mysql> select *from DemoTable629
   where StudentSubject like '%\%';

This will produce the following output −

+-----------+----------------+
| StudentId | StudentSubject |
+-----------+----------------+
|         1 | MySQL%         |
+-----------+----------------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)
