mySQL select IN range

Posted by: admin November 1, 2017 Leave a comment

Questions:

Is it possible to define a range for the IN part of the query, something like this

SELECT job FROM mytable WHERE id IN (10..15);

Instead of

SELECT job FROM mytable WHERE id IN (10,11,12,13,14,15);
Answers:

You can’t, but you can use BETWEEN

SELECT job FROM mytable WHERE id BETWEEN 10 AND 15

Note that BETWEEN is inclusive, and will include items with both id 10 and 15.

If you do not want inclusion, you’ll have to fall back to using the > and < operators.

SELECT job FROM mytable WHERE id > 10 AND id < 15

Answers:

To select data in numerical range you can use BETWEEN which is inclusive.

SELECT JOB FROM MYTABLE WHERE ID BETWEEN 10 AND 15;
