Sort a list in MySQL and display a fixed result at the end of the column?

MySQLMySQLi Database

Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable(
   FirstName varchar(100)
);
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.97 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Chris');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.31 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Adam');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.35 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values('John');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.21 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Sam');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.37 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Mike');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.27 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values('David');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.27 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement −

mysql> select *from DemoTable;

This will produce the following output −

+-----------+
| FirstName |
+-----------+
| Chris     |
| Adam      |
| John      |
| Sam       |
| Mike      |
| David     |
+-----------+
6 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Here is the query to sort the list and set a fixed result at the end. We have set the name “Mike” at the end −

mysql> select *from DemoTable order by FirstName='Mike',FirstName;

This will produce the following output −

+-----------+
| FirstName |
+-----------+
| Adam      |
| Chris     |
| David     |
| John      |
| Sam       |
| Mike      |
+-----------+
6 rows in set (0.00 sec)
