How to select last two rows in MySQL?

MySQLMySQLi Database

To select last two rows, use ORDER BY DESC LIMIT 2.

Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable763 (
   Id int NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY,
   FirstName varchar(100)
);
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.57 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable763(FirstName) values('John');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.19 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable763(FirstName) values('Sam');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.12 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable763(FirstName) values('Carol');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.14 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable763(FirstName) values('David');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.13 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable763(FirstName) values('Bob');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.13 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement −

mysql> select *from DemoTable763;

This will produce the following output -

+----+-----------+
| Id | FirstName |
+----+-----------+
|  1 | John      |
|  2 | Sam       |
|  3 | Carol     |
|  4 | David     |
|  5 | Bob       |
+----+-----------+
5 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Following is the query to select last two rows in MySQL −

mysql> select *from DemoTable763 order by Id DESC LIMIT 2;

This will produce the following output -

+----+-----------+
| Id | FirstName |
+----+-----------+
|  5 | Bob       |
|  4 | David     |
+----+-----------+
2 rows in set (0.00 sec)
