In this article, we would like to show you how to use LIMIT clause in MySQL.

Quick solution:

SELECT `column1`, `column2`, ...
FROM `table_name`
WHERE condition
LIMIT number
OFFSET number;

Practical example

To show how the LIMIT clause works, we will use the following table:

MySQL - example data used with LIMIT clause
MySQL - example data used with LIMIT clause

Note:

At the end of this article you can find database preparation SQL queries.

Example 1

In this example, we will display all information about the first two users.

Query:

SELECT * 
FROM `users` 
LIMIT 2;

Output:

MySQL - LIMIT clause
Results - HeidiSQL

Example 2

In this example, we will also display all information about users limited to 2, but this time we set an OFFSET to skip the first user.

Query:

SELECT * 
FROM `users` 
LIMIT 2
OFFSET 1;

Output:

MySQL - LIMIT clause with OFFSET result
Result - HeidiSQL

Database preparation

create_tables.sql file:

CREATE TABLE `users` (
	`id` INT(10) UNSIGNED NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
	`name` VARCHAR(100) NOT NULL,
	`role` VARCHAR(15) NOT NULL,
	PRIMARY KEY (`id`)
)
ENGINE=InnoDB;

insert_data.sql file:

INSERT INTO `users`
	(`name`, `role`)
VALUES
	('John', 'admin'),
	('Chris', 'moderator'),
	('Kate', 'user'),
	('Denis', 'moderator');
