Node.js - PostgreSQL - find row where column is empty string (blank)
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 findRows = async (text) => {
	const query = `
            SELECT * 
            FROM "users" 
            WHERE "email" = $1;
    `;
    await client.connect();  // creates connection
    try {
        const { rows } =  await client.query(query, [text]);  // sends query
        return rows;
    } finally {
        await client.end();  // closes connection
    }
};

findRows('')  // empty string 
    .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,
	"email" VARCHAR(50),
	PRIMARY KEY ("id")
);

insert_data.sqlΒ file:

INSERT INTO "users"
	( "name", "surname", "email")
VALUES
	('John', 'Stewart', 'john@email.com'),
	('Chris', 'Brown', ''),
	('Kate', 'Lewis',''),
	('Ailisa', 'Gomez', 'ailisa@email.com'),
	('Gwendolyn', 'James', ''),
	('Simon', 'Collins', ''),
	('Taylor', 'Martin',''),
	('Andrew', 'Thompson', 'andrew123@email.com');

Native SQL query (used in the above example):

SELECT * 
FROM "users" 
WHERE "email" = $1;
