Select text after last slash in MySQL?

MySQLMySQLi Database

You need to use substring_index() function from MySQL to select text.

The syntax is as follows

SELECT substring_index(yourColumnName,'/',-1) AS anyAliasName FROM yourTableName;

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

mysql> create table selectTextAfterLastSlashDemo
   - > (
   - > UserId int NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY,
   - > UserPathDirectory varchar(200)
   - > );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.54 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command.

The query is as follows

mysql> insert into selectTextAfterLastSlashDemo(UserPathDirectory)
values('C:/MyFolder1/MyEntityFramework');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.18 sec)
mysql> insert into selectTextAfterLastSlashDemo(UserPathDirectory)
values('D:/MySpringFrameworkDemo');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.14 sec)
mysql> insert into selectTextAfterLastSlashDemo(UserPathDirectory)
values('E:/Java/MyRootFolder/Source/AllHibernateDemo');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.14 sec)
mysql> insert into selectTextAfterLastSlashDemo(UserPathDirectory) values('C:/Program
Files/MySQL/Server 8.0');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.20 sec)
mysql> insert into selectTextAfterLastSlashDemo(UserPathDirectory)
values('C:/John/Folder1/Folder2');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.10 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement.

The query is as follows

mysql> select *from selectTextAfterLastSlashDemo;

The following is the output displaying path in of the columns

+--------+----------------------------------------------+
| UserId | UserPathDirectory                            |
+--------+----------------------------------------------+
|     1 | C:/MyFolder1/MyEntityFramework                |
|     2 | D:/MySpringFrameworkDemo                      |
|     3 | E:/Java/MyRootFolder/Source/AllHibernateDemo  |
|     4 | C:/Program Files/MySQL/Server 8.0             |
|     5 | C:/John/Folder1/Folder2                       |
+--------+----------------------------------------------+
5 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Here is the query to get text after last slash

mysql> select substring_index(UserPathDirectory,'/',-1) as TextAfterLastSlash from
selectTextAfterLastSlashDemo;

The following is the output displaying the text after last slash

+-----------------------+
| TextAfterLastSlash    |
+-----------------------+
| MyEntityFramework     |
| MySpringFrameworkDemo |
| AllHibernateDemo      |
| Server 8.0            |
| Folder2               |
+-----------------------+
5 rows in set (0.00 sec)
