How to get the possible values for SET field in MySQL?


To get possible values for set field, you can use below syntax −

desc yourTableName yourSetColumnName;

Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable
   (
   Game set('Chess','Pig Dice','29 Card')
   );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.60 sec)

Following is the query to get available values for set field −

mysql> desc DemoTable Game;

This will produce the following output −

+-------+-----------------------------------+------+-----+---------+-------+
| Field | Type                              | Null | Key | Default | Extra |
+-------+-----------------------------------+------+-----+---------+-------+
| Game  | set('Chess','Pig Dice','29 Card') | YES  |     | NULL    |       |
+-------+-----------------------------------+------+-----+---------+-------+
1 row in set (0.02 sec)
