ORDER BY Keyword
The order by keyword is use to sort the records in ascending or descending order. We use ASC for ascending and DESC for sorting the records in descending order.
SELECT column1, column2, ... FROM table_name ORDER BY column1, column2, ... ASC|DESC;
Example for ORDER BY
Note: where we didn’t mention the ASC or DESC it means it will sort the records in ascending order by default.
SELECT * FROM Customers ORDER BY Country;
Example for ORDER BY for Several Columns
We can sort several columns in different order. Like we sort a column in ascending order and the other in descending order,
SELECT * FROM Customers ORDER BY Country ASC, CustomerName DESC;
