MySQL BETWEEN without the beginning and endpoints?

MySQLMySQLi Database

If you do not want to include start and end value in between, then use the following syntax −

SELECT * FROM yourTableName WHERE yourColumnName BETWEEN yourStartingValue and yourEndingValue and
   yourColumnName not in (yourStartingValue , yourEndingValue );

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

mysql> create table BetweenWithoutEndPoints
   -> (
   -> Id int NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
   -> Name varchar(20),
   -> Age int,
   -> PRIMARY KEY(Id)
   -> );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.54 sec)

Now you can insert some records in the table using insert command. The query is as follows −

mysql> insert into BetweenWithoutEndPoints(Name,Age) values('Mike',23);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.21 sec)

mysql> insert into BetweenWithoutEndPoints(Name,Age) values('Larry',25);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.21 sec)

mysql> insert into BetweenWithoutEndPoints(Name,Age) values('David',28);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.16 sec)

mysql> insert into BetweenWithoutEndPoints(Name,Age) values('Sam',26);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.15 sec)

mysql> insert into BetweenWithoutEndPoints(Name,Age) values('Carol',21);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.14 sec)

mysql> insert into BetweenWithoutEndPoints(Name,Age) values('John',29);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.18 sec)

mysql> insert into BetweenWithoutEndPoints(Name,Age) values('James',20);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.41 sec)

mysql> insert into BetweenWithoutEndPoints(Name,Age) values('Robert',26);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.17 sec)

mysql> insert into BetweenWithoutEndPoints(Name,Age) values('Michael',30);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.16 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement. The query is as follows −

mysql> select *from BetweenWithoutEndPoints;

The following is the output.

+----+---------+------+
| Id | Name    | Age  |
+----+---------+------+
| 1  | Mike    | 23   |
| 2  | Larry   | 25   |
| 3  | David   | 28   |
| 4  | Sam     | 26   |
| 5  | Carol   | 21   |
| 6  | John    | 29   |
| 7  | James   | 20   |
| 8  | Robert  | 26   |
| 9  | Michael | 30   |
+----+---------+------+
9 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Here is the query of MySQL between without getting the starting and ending point. The below query does not include the 3 and 8:

mysql> select *from BetweenWithoutEndPoints
-> where Id between 3 and 8 and Id not in (3, 8);

The following is the output:

+----+-------+------+
| Id | Name  | Age  |
+----+-------+------+
| 4  | Sam   | 26   |
| 5  | Carol | 21   |
| 6  | John  | 29   |
| 7  | James | 20   |
+----+-------+------+
4 rows in set (0.04 sec)
