How to obtain multiple rows in a single MySQL query?

MySQLMySQLi Database

To obtain multiple rows in a single MySQL query, use LIKE operator. Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable1385
   -> (
   -> Id int NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY,
   -> Name varchar(20)
   -> );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.90 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable1385(Name) values('Chris Brown');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.12 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable1385(Name) values('Adam Smith');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.22 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable1385(Name) values('Carol Taylor');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.15 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable1385(Name) values('John Doe');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.48 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable1385(Name) values('John Smith');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.14 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement −

mysql> select * from DemoTable1385;

This will produce the following output −

+----+--------------+
| Id | Name         |
+----+--------------+
|  1 | Chris Brown  |
|  2 | Adam Smith   |
|  3 | Carol Taylor |
|  4 | John Doe     |
|  5 | John Smith   |
+----+--------------+
5 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Here is the query to obtain multiple rows in a single MySQL query −

mysql> select * from DemoTable1385 where Name LIKE '%Smith';

This will produce the following output −

+----+------------+
| Id | Name       |
+----+------------+
|  2 | Adam Smith |
|  5 | John Smith |
+----+------------+
2 rows in set (0.00 sec)
