In this article, we would like to show you how to convert a value to CHAR type using CONVERT() function in MySQL.

Quick solution:

SELECT CONVERT(value, CHAR);

Simple example

In this example, we will convert INT value to CHAR type.

Query:

SELECT CONVERT(100, CHAR) AS 'int_to_char';

Result:

MySQL - convert value to char - result
MySQL - convert value to char - result

Practical example

To show how to convert value to CHAR, we will use the following values table:

MySQL - example data used to convert int value to char with CONVERT() function
MySQL - example data used to convert int value to char with CONVERT() function

Note:

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

Example

In this example, we will convert max_value column (which is INT type) from values table to CHAR type.

Query:

SELECT
    `id`, `min_value`, `max_value`,
    CONVERT(`max_value`, CHAR) AS 'max_value_char'
FROM `values`;

Output:

MySQL - convert value to char - result
MySQL - convert value to char - result

Database preparation

create_tables.sql file:

CREATE TABLE `values` (
	`id` INT(10) UNSIGNED NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
	`min_value` INT,
	`max_value` INT,
	PRIMARY KEY (`id`)
);

insert_data.sql file:

INSERT INTO `values`
    (`min_value`, `max_value`)
values
    (1000, 1500),
    (1500, 2000),
    (1400, 2500),
    (1200, 3000),
    (1800, 3500);
