MySQL query to display only 15 words from the left?

MySQLMySQLi Database

For this, use LEFT in MySQL. Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable
   -> (
   -> Title text
   -> );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.59 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Java database connectivity to MySQL database');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.12 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Python with django framework');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.11 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values('C with data structure and algorithm');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.33 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement −

mysql> select *from DemoTable;

This will produce the following output −

+----------------------------------------------+
| Title                                        |
+----------------------------------------------+
| Java database connectivity to MySQL database |
| Python with django framework                 |
| C with data structure and algorithm          |
+----------------------------------------------+
3 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Following is the query to display only 15 words from the left in MySQL −

mysql> select left(Title,15) as Title from DemoTable;

This will produce the following output:

+-----------------+
| Title           |
+-----------------+
| Java database c |
| Python with dja |
| C with data str |
+-----------------+
3 rows in set (0.00 sec)
