MySQL query to display ASC order in number column?

MySQLMySQLi Database

You can achieve this with the help of CAST() function. Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable
   (
   Id int NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY,
   Score int
   );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.72 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable(Score) values(10);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.19 sec)

mysql> insert into DemoTable(Score) values(100);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.14 sec)

mysql> insert into DemoTable(Score) values(11);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.13 sec)

mysql> insert into DemoTable(Score) values(97);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.14 sec)

mysql> insert into DemoTable(Score) values(78);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.13 sec)

mysql> insert into DemoTable(Score) values(89);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.18 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement −

mysql> select *from DemoTable;

This will produce the following output −

+----+-------+
| Id | Score |
+----+-------+
| 1  | 10    |
| 2  | 100   |
| 3  | 11    |
| 4  | 97    |
| 5  | 78    |
| 6  | 89    |
+----+-------+
6 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Following is the query to set ASC order in number column −

mysql> select *from DemoTable order by cast(Score AS SIGNED INTEGER) ASC;

This will produce the following output −

+----+-------+
| Id | Score |
+----+-------+
| 1  | 10    |
| 3  | 11    |
| 5  | 78    |
| 6  | 89    |
| 4  | 97    |
| 2  | 100   |
+----+-------+
6 rows in set (0.00 sec)
