Only display specified values inside the IN clause with MySQL?

MySQLMySQLi Database

For this, you can use IN() along with ORDER BY clause. Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable1986
   (
   Number int
   );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable1986 values(50);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.00 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable1986 values(60);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.00 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable1986 values(100);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.00 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable1986 values(200);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.00 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable1986 values(350);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.00 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement −

mysql> select * from DemoTable1986;

This will produce the following output −

+--------+
| Number |
+--------+
|     50 |
|     60 |
|    100 |
|    200 |
|    350 |
+--------+
5 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Here is the query to show specified id inside the IN clause −

mysql> select * from DemoTable1986 where Number IN(50,100,350) order by field(Number,350,100,50);

This will produce the following output −

+--------+
| Number |
+--------+
|    350 |
|    100 |
|     50 |
+--------+
3 rows in set (0.00 sec)
