MySQLMySQLi Database

The SHOW TABLE STATUS in MySQL displays the NAME, ENGINE, VERSION, ROWS, CHECKSUM, etc of a table −


Let us first create a table. Here, we are using the MyISAM engine. The query to create a table is as follows −

mysql> create table Post_Demo
   -> (
   -> PostId int,
   -> PostName varchar(100),
   -> PostDate datetime,
   -> PRIMARY KEY(PostId)
   -> )ENGINE = MyISAM;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.28 sec)

Now you can check the table status using SHOW TABLE command. The query is as follows −

mysql> show table status where Name = 'Post_Demo'\G
