MySQL BIT_AND Function

MySQL BIT_AND is one of the Aggregate Functions, which performs Bitwise AND operation on all bits. This MySQL BIT_AND function first converts all decimal values into binary values, and perform bitwise and operation on those binary values.


The basic syntax of the BIT_AND Function in MySQL is as shown below:

SELECT BIT_AND (Expression)
FROM [Source]

The Truth Table behind this Bit_And function is

xyx BIT_AND y

MySQL BIT_AND Function Example 1

In this example, we are going to implement the BIT_AND function on different columns in a table. To demonstrate the same, we are going to use the dup employee 2 table data that we have shown below

MySQL BIT_AND Function Example 1

The following MySQL statement finds the Bitwise AND values of Sales 1 and Sales 2 columns.

-- MySQL BIT_AND Function Example
USE company;
FROM dupemploy2;
MySQL BIT_AND Function Example 2

x = 9 = 1001

y = 12 = 1100

and the Bitwise AND for the above bits is 1000 = 8

MySQL BIT_AND Group By Example

In this example, we are going to use the BIT_AND function along with the Group By clause. For this Aggregate Function example, We are going to use the below shown data

MySQL AVG Example 1


-- MySQL Aggregate BIT_AND Function Example
SELECT Profession,
FROM company.dupcustomerdetails
group by Profession;
MySQL BIT_AND Function Example 3

Let me take the Example for Developer Group

85000 = 10100110000001000
80000 = 10011100010000000
55000 = 01101011011011000

and the MySQL output is 0
