Order MySQL results without identifier?

MySQLMySQLi Database

To order MySQL results without identifier, the syntax is as follows −

select * from yourTableName order by 1 DESC LIMIT yourLimitValue;

Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable1325
   -> (
   -> Id int,
   -> Name varchar(20)
   -> );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.69 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable1325 values(100,'Chris');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.13 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable1325 values(101,'Bob');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.12 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable1325 values(120,'David');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.14 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable1325 values(115,'Sam');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.18 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable1325 values(130,'Carol');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.14 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable1325 values(150,'Mike');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.15 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement −

mysql> select * from DemoTable1325;

This will produce the following output −

+------+-------+
|  Id  | Name  |
+------+-------+
|  100 | Chris |
|  101 | Bob   |
|  120 | David |
|  115 | Sam   |
|  130 | Carol |
|  150 | Mike  |
+------+-------+
6 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Here is the query to order MySQL results without identifier −

mysql> select * from DemoTable1325 order by 1 DESC LIMIT 4;

This will produce the following output

+------+-------+
| Id   | Name  |
+------+-------+
| 150  | Mike  |
| 130  | Carol |
| 120  | David |
| 115  | Sam   |
+------+-------+
4 rows in set (0.00 sec)
