Select last 20 records ordered in ascending order in MySQL?

MySQLMySQLi Database

To select last 20 records in ascending order, you can use subquery LIMIT clause. The syntax is as follows

SELECT *FROM
(
   SELECT *FROM yourTableName ORDER BY yourColumnName desc limit 20
)
anyVariableName order by anyVariableName.yourColumnName;

To understand the above syntax, let us create a table. The query to create a table is as follows

mysql> create table ProductInformation
   -> (
   -> ProductId int,
   -> ProductName varchar(100),
   -> ProductPrice int
   -> );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.50 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command. The query is as follows

mysql> insert into ProductInformation values(101,'Product-1',200);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.16 sec)

mysql> insert into ProductInformation values(102,'Product-2',300);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.23 sec)

mysql> insert into ProductInformation values(103,'Product-3',700);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.09 sec)

mysql> insert into ProductInformation values(104,'Product-4',100);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.15 sec)

mysql> insert into ProductInformation values(105,'Product-5',1500);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.18 sec)

mysql> insert into ProductInformation values(106,'Product-6',1200);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.18 sec)

mysql> insert into ProductInformation values(107,'Product-7',1300);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.17 sec)

mysql> insert into ProductInformation values(108,'Product-8',1600);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.29 sec)

mysql> insert into ProductInformation values(109,'Product-9',1250);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.15 sec)

mysql> insert into ProductInformation values(110,'Product-10',1900);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.15 sec)

mysql> insert into ProductInformation values(111,'Product-11',1870);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.13 sec)

mysql> insert into ProductInformation values(112,'Product-12',1876);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.11 sec)

mysql> insert into ProductInformation values(113,'Product-13',1869);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.19 sec)

mysql> insert into ProductInformation values(114,'Product-14',1456);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.25 sec)

mysql> insert into ProductInformation values(115,'Product-15',1860);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.16 sec)

mysql> insert into ProductInformation values(116,'Product-16',359);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.21 sec)

mysql> insert into ProductInformation values(117,'Product-17',1667);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.09 sec)

mysql> insert into ProductInformation values(118,'Product-18',1467);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.11 sec)

mysql> insert into ProductInformation values(119,'Product-19',2134);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.24 sec)

mysql> insert into ProductInformation values(120,'Product-20',3450);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.10 sec)

mysql> insert into ProductInformation values(121,'Product-21',198);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.22 sec)

mysql> insert into ProductInformation values(122,'Product-22',195);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.21 sec)

mysql> insert into ProductInformation values(123,'Product-23',10000);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.15 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement. The query is as follows

mysql> select *from ProductInformation;

The following is the output

+-----------+-------------+--------------+
| ProductId | ProductName | ProductPrice |
+-----------+-------------+--------------+
|       101 | Product-1   |          200 |
|       102 | Product-2   |          300 |

   -> ) t1 order by t1.ProductId asc;

The following is the output

+-----------+-------------+--------------+

If you want the records in descending order, then use desc. The query is as follows to get result in descending order.

mysql> select *from
   -> (
   -> select *from ProductInformation order by ProductId desc limit 20
   -> ) t2 order by t2.ProductId desc;

The following is the output

+-----------+-------------+--------------+
| ProductId | ProductName | ProductPrice |
+-----------+-------------+--------------+
|       123 | Product-23  |        10000 |
