How to get the data associated with the maximum id in a MySQL table?


We will first order by DESC and then fetch the value associated with maximum id −

select *from yourTableName order by yourColumnName DESC LIMIT 1,1;

Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable
   -> (
   -> Alldata int
   -> );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.63 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable values(303);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.18 sec)

mysql> insert into DemoTable values(560);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.14 sec)

mysql> insert into DemoTable values(100);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.13 sec)

mysql> insert into DemoTable values(490);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.14 sec)

mysql> insert into DemoTable values(498);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.14 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement −

mysql> select *from DemoTable;

Output

+---------+
| Alldata |
+---------+
|     303 |
|     560 |
|     100 |
|     490 |
|     498 |
+---------+
5 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Following is the query to get the record associated with the maximum id −

mysql> select *from DemoTable order by Alldata DESC LIMIT 1,1;

Output

+---------+
| Alldata |
+---------+
|     498 |
+---------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)
