In this article, we would like to show you how to convert a stringΒ to lower case usingΒ LOWER() function in the Postgres database from Node.js level.

Node.js - PostgreSQL LOWER()
Data used in the example - HeidiSQL

Note:Β at the end of this article you can find database preparation SQL queries.

const { Client } = require('pg');

const client = new Client({
    host: '127.0.0.1',
    user: 'my_username',
    database: 'my_database',
    password: 'my_password',
    port: 5432,
});

const fetchLowerCaseNames = async () => {
	const query = `    
            SELECT LOWER("name") AS "Lowercase names" 
            FROM "users";
    `;
    await client.connect();  // creates connection
    try {
        const { rows } = await client.query(query);  // sends query
        return rows;
    } finally {
        await client.end();  // closes connection
    }
};

fetchLowerCaseNames()
    .then(result => console.table(result))
    .catch(error => console.error(error.stack));

Result:Β

Database preparation

create_tables.sqlΒ file:

CREATE TABLE "users" (
	"id" SERIAL,
	"name" VARCHAR(50) NOT NULL,
	"surname" VARCHAR(50) NOT NULL,
	"department_id" INTEGER,
   "salary" DECIMAL(15,2) NOT NULL,
	PRIMARY KEY ("id")
);

insert_data.sqlΒ file:

INSERT INTO "users"
	( "name", "surname", "department_id", "salary")
VALUES
	('John', 'Stewart', 1, '3512.00'),
	('Chris', 'Brown', 2, '1344.00'),
	('Kate', 'Lewis', 3, '6574.00'),
	('Ailisa', 'Gomez', NULL, '6500.00'),
	('Gwendolyn', 'James', 2, '4200.00'),
	('Simon', 'Cousersllins', 4, '3320.00'),
	('Taylor', 'Martin', 2, '1500.00'),
	('Andrew', 'Thompson', NULL, '2100.00');

Native SQL query (used in the above example):

SELECT LOWER("name") AS "Lowercase names" 
FROM "users";
