How to ORDER BY FIELD with GROUP BY in a single MySQL query?

MySQLMySQLi Database

For this, let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable
(
   Message text
);
Query OK, 0 rows affected (1.15 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Good');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.43 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Bye');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.12 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Awesome');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.17 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Bye');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.08 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Good');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.23 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Amazing');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.16 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Awesome');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.10 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Bye');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.12 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement −

mysql> select *from DemoTable;

This will produce the following output −

+---------+
| Message |
+---------+
| Good    |
| Bye     |
| Awesome |
| Bye     |
| Good    |
| Amazing |
| Awesome |
| Bye     |
+---------+
