Where clause in MS SQL Server
  • Last Updated : 09 Jun, 2020

In this article, where clause will be discussed alongside example.

Introduction :

  1. To extract the data at times, we need a particular conditions to satisfy.
  2. ‘where’ is a clause used to write the condition in the query.

Syntax :

select select_list
from table_name
where condition

A example is given below for better clarification –

Example :



Sample table: Student

Roll number Name Course
111 Riya CSE
112 Apoorva ECE
113 Mina Mech
114 Rita Biotechnology
115 Veena Chemical
116 Deepa EEE

If a user wants to extract the name of the student who is pursuing Mechanical, the query is as follows:

select name
from student
where course='Mechanical' 

The output is –

Name Course
Mina Mech

‘where’ condition filters only the rows that are evaluated to true. If the condition evaluates to false or unknown, the rows will not be filtered causing an error.
