Implement multiple LIKE operators in a single MySQL query

MySQLMySQLi Database

To implement multiple LIKE clauses, the syntax is as follows −

select * from yourTableName
 where yourColumnName1 LIKE ('%yourValue1%' or yourColumnName2 LIKE '%yourValue2%') or (yourColumnName3 LIKE '%yourValue3');

Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable1534
   -> (
   -> ClientId int NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY,
   -> ClientName varchar(20),
   -> ClientAge int,
   -> ClientCountryName varchar(20)
   -> );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.78 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable1534(ClientName,ClientAge,ClientCountryName) values('Chris Brown',29,'AUS');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.21 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable1534(ClientName,ClientAge,ClientCountryName) values('David Miller',49,'UK');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.14 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable1534(ClientName,ClientAge,ClientCountryName) values('John Doe',43,'US');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.22 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable1534(ClientName,ClientAge,ClientCountryName) values('Adam Smith',38,'US');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.12 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable1534(ClientName,ClientAge,ClientCountryName) values('Carol Taylor',36,'UK');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.16 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement −

mysql> select * from DemoTable1534;

This will produce the following output −

+----------+--------------+-----------+-------------------+
| ClientId | ClientName   | ClientAge | ClientCountryName |
+----------+--------------+-----------+-------------------+
|        1 | Chris Brown  |        29 | AUS               |
|        2 | David Miller |        49 | UK                |
|        3 | John Doe     |        43 | US                |
|        4 | Adam Smith   |        38 | US                |
|        5 | Carol Taylor |        36 | UK                |
+----------+--------------+-----------+-------------------+
5 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Following is the query for multiple LIKE operator usage in a single query −

mysql> select * from DemoTable1534
   -> where ClientName LIKE ('%Doe%' or ClientAge LIKE '%38%') or (ClientCountryName LIKE '%S');

This will produce the following output −

+----------+-------------+-----------+-------------------+
| ClientId | ClientName  | ClientAge | ClientCountryName |
+----------+-------------+-----------+-------------------+
|        1 | Chris Brown |        29 | AUS               |
|        3 | John Doe    |        43 | US                |
|        4 | Adam Smith  |        38 | US                |
+----------+-------------+-----------+-------------------+
3 rows in set, 5 warnings (0.00 sec)
