In this article, we would like to show you how to find all tables with specific column names in MySQL

Quick solution:

SELECT DISTINCT TABLE_NAME 
FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.COLUMNS
WHERE COLUMN_NAME IN ('column1','column2', 'columnN')
AND TABLE_SCHEMA='your_database';

Practical example

Let's say we have a database named dirask that contains users table and admins table, both with the following columns:

  • id
  • name
  • surname
  • email

and locations table with columns:

  • id
  • address

Example 1

In this example, we will display all the tables from dirask database that contain name OR surname columns.

Query:

SELECT DISTINCT TABLE_NAME 
FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.COLUMNS
WHERE COLUMN_NAME IN ('name','surname')
AND TABLE_SCHEMA='dirask';

Output:

MySQL - find all tables with specific column names - result
MySQL - find all tables with specific column names - result

Example 2

In this example, we will display all the tables from dirask database that contain id column.

Query:

SELECT DISTINCT TABLE_NAME 
FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.COLUMNS
WHERE COLUMN_NAME IN ('id')
AND TABLE_SCHEMA='dirask';

Output:

MySQL - find all tables with specific column name - result
MySQL - find all tables with specific column name - result
