SQL ORDER BY Clause

The ORDER BY Clause is used to sort the results either in ascending or descending order based on one or more columns.

Oracle and some other database sorts query results in ascending order by default.

Syntax:

SELECT * FROM tableName [WHERE condition] [ORDER BY column1, column2,…,columnN] [ASC | DESC];

Where ASC keyword is used for ascending order and DESC keyword is used for descending order.

 Example:

SELECT * FROM EMPLOYEE ORDER BY EMP_NAME;

Output:

EMP_ID	EMP_NAME	AGE	SALARY
3	Nidhi	        28	48000
4	Parbhjot	29	46000
1	Parbhjot	28	35000
5	Parmender	28	45000
2	Parmender	28	45000
