MySQL query to search exact word from string?

MySQLMySQLi Database

To search exact word from string, use the below syntax −

select *from yourTableName
where
yourColumnName regexp '(^|[[:space:]])yourWord([[:space:]]|$)';

Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable
   (
   Title text
   );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.23 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable values('This is the Introduction to Java');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.05 sec)

mysql> insert into DemoTable values('This is the Introduction to MongoDB');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.07 sec)

mysql> insert into DemoTable values('This is the Introduction to MySQL');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.06 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement −

mysql> select *from DemoTable;

This will produce the following output −

+-------------------------------------+
| Title                               |
+-------------------------------------+
| This is the Introduction to Java    |
| This is the Introduction to MongoDB |
| This is the Introduction to MySQL   |
+-------------------------------------+
3 rows in set (0.00 sec)
