SELECT last entry without using LIMIT in MySQL?

MySQLMySQLi Database

For this, you can use subquery. Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable
   -> (
   -> Id int NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY,
   -> Name varchar(100)
   -> );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.54 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable(Name) values('John Smith');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.18 sec)

mysql> insert into DemoTable(Name) values('David Miller');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.13 sec)

mysql> insert into DemoTable(Name) values('Chris Brown');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.22 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement −

mysql> select *from DemoTable;

Output

+----+--------------+
| Id | Name         |
+----+--------------+
| 1  | John Smith   |
| 2  | David Miller |
| 3  | Chris Brown  |
+----+--------------+
3 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Here is the query to get the last entry without using LIMIT in MySQL −

mysql> select *from DemoTable -> where Id=(select max(Id) from DemoTable);

Output

+----+-------------+
| Id | Name        |
+----+-------------+
| 3  | Chris Brown |
+----+-------------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)
