MySQL Right is one of the String functions, which returns the rightmost characters of the user-specified expression (or column value). This method uses its second argument to decide, How many characters it should return.
Let us see how to write String right using Command Prompt and Workbench with an example, and the basic syntax of it is as shown below:
SELECT RIGHT(String_Expression, value) FROM Source
For this demo, we are going to use the below shown data
MySQL Right Function Example
The Right method returns the rightmost characters in a given string. The following string function query shows multiple ways to use this Right function.
SELECT RIGHT('Learn MySQL Server', 12) AS `Rightmost Characters`; SELECT RIGHT('Tutorial Gateway', 7) AS `Rightmost Characters`;
MySQL also allows you to return the rightmost characters of the data inside the columns. In this example, we are going to find the rightmost characters of all the records present in the Department Name and Email column.
USE mysqltutorial; SELECT FirstName, LastName, DepartmentName, RIGHT(DepartmentName, 7) AS `Last 6 Characters in Department`, Email, RIGHT(Email, 9) AS `Last 9 Characters in Email` FROM employe ORDER BY FirstName, LastName;
