How to return the nth record from MySQL query?

MySQLMySQLi Database

To get the nth record from MySQL query, you can use LIMIT. The syntax is as follows −

select *from yourTableName order by yourColumnName limit n,1;

To understand the above syntax, let us create a table. The following is the query to create a table −

mysql> create table NthRecordDemo
   −> (
   −> Id int,
   −> Name varchar(200)
   −> );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.92 sec)

Insert some records in the table using the following query −

mysql> insert into NthRecordDemo values(100,'John');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.09 sec)

mysql> insert into NthRecordDemo values(101,'Bob');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.14 sec)

mysql> insert into NthRecordDemo values(102,'Carol');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.22 sec)

mysql> insert into NthRecordDemo values(103,'Smith');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.18 sec)

mysql> insert into NthRecordDemo values(104,'Johnson');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.16 sec)

mysql> insert into NthRecordDemo values(105,'Sam');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.16 sec)

mysql> insert into NthRecordDemo values(106,'David');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.13 sec)

Display all records from the table with the help of select statement. The query is as follows −

mysql> select *from NthRecordDemo;

The following is the output −

+------+---------+
| Id   | Name    |
+------+---------+
| 100  | John    |
| 101  | Bob     |
| 102  | Carol   |
| 103  | Smith   |
| 104  | Johnson |
| 105  | Sam     |
| 106  | David   |
+------+---------+
7 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Use the following query to get nth record from the table −

mysql> select *from NthRecordDemo order by Id limit 6,1;

The following is the output −

+------+-------+
| Id   | Name  |
+------+-------+
| 106  | David |
+------+-------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)
