How to order last 5 records by ID in MySQL

MySQLMySQLi Database

You can use subquery for this. Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable
(
   Id int
);
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.68 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable values(100);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.16 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values(115);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.32 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values(200);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.28 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values(140);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.16 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values(124);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.13 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values(198);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.24 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values(156);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.15 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values(178);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.23 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values(156);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.43 sec)

Following is the query to display all records from the table using select statement −

mysql> select *from DemoTable;

This will produce the following output −

+------+
| Id   |
+------+
| 100  |
| 115  |
| 200  |
| 140  |
| 124  |
| 198  |
| 156  |
| 178  |
| 156  |
+------+
9 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Here is the query to get last 5 records ordered by ID −

mysql> select *from(select *from DemoTable order by Id DESC limit 5)tbl
order by Id;

This will produce the following output −

+------+
| Id   |
+------+
| 156  |
| 156  |
| 178  |
| 198  |
| 200  |
+------+
5 rows in set (0.00 sec)
