Searching 2 fields at the same time to fetch a specific First Name and Last Name from a table in MySQL

MySQLi DatabaseMySQL

For this, you can use LIKE operator along with AND. Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable
(
   EmployeeFirstName varchar(50),
   EmployeeLastName varchar(50)
);
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.64 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable values('John','Smith');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.61 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values('David','Miller');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.15 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values('John','Doe');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.09 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Adam','Smith');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.09 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Carol','Taylor');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.08 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement −

mysql> select *from DemoTable;

This will produce the following output −

+-------------------+------------------+
| EmployeeFirstName | EmployeeLastName |
+-------------------+------------------+
| John              | Smith            |
| David             | Miller           |
| John              | Doe              |
| Adam              | Smith            |
| Carol             | Taylor           |
+-------------------+------------------+
5 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Following is the query to search 2 fields at the same time to fetch records with FirstName beginning with “Joh” and LastName beginning with “Sm” −

mysql> select *from DemoTable
where EmployeeFirstName LIKE 'Joh%'
and EmployeeLastName LIKE 'Sm%';

This will produce the following output −

+-------------------+------------------+
| EmployeeFirstName | EmployeeLastName |
+-------------------+------------------+
| John              | Smith            |
+-------------------+------------------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)
