mysql order by two columns, DESC & ASC, limit, field, specific sequence, desc limit, alphabetical, date, case.
SELECT select_list FROM table_name ORDER BY column1 [ASC|DESC], column2 [ASC|DESC], ...;
ORDER BY ascending & descending Order
ORDER BY column1 ASC; ORDER BY column1 DESC;
clauses are equivalent:
ORDER BY column1 ASC; and ORDER BY column1;
MySQL ORDER BY clause to sort values in single column
SELECT relativemembersirname, relativemembername FROM members ORDER BY relativemembersirname;
relative member sirname in the descending order
SELECT relativemembersirname, relativemembername FROM members ORDER BY relativemembersirname DESC;
MySQL ORDER BY clause with multiple columns example
SELECT relativemembersirname, relativemembername FROM members ORDER BY relativemembersirname DESC, relativemembername ASC;
MySQL ORDER BY with an expression example
SELECT stockNumber, stocklinenumber, qtyOrdered * amountEach FROM stockdetails ORDER BY qtyOrdered * amountEach DESC;
SELECT clause a column alias
SELECT stockNumber, stockLineNumber, qtyOrdered * amountEach AS subtotal FROM stockdetails ORDER BY subtotal DESC;
ORDER BY to sort data using a custom list
SELECT stockNumber, is_check FROM stocks ORDER BY FIELD(is_check, 'In Process', 'On Hold', 'Cancelled', 'Resolved', 'Disputed', 'Shipped');
I hope you get an idea about ORDER BY.
