Like operator with IN Clause SQL

If you are here you already know about In Clause and Like in SQL, let me just give you a brief over view about it


Like is a wild card when used would search up any row which has your condition

(For better understanding Please look it up)


IN Clause when used with where statement will return all the records that meet criteria in the list provided in the IN clause


Like how ever can’t be used with IN Clause, for that you will have to do something like this :



Select * from Table

where column like ‘%ab%’ or column like %cd%’ or column like %ef%’
