The OFFSET is a clause that skips some records from the result set.
The basic syntax of the OFFSET clause is shown below:
The parameters and arguments from the syntax are:
- columns: the columns to be fetched.
- table_name: a table from which the records will be fetched.
- OFFSET: a clause that will skip a subset of records.
- num: the number of records to be skipped.
1) Here, we are creating one new table called oxlafunctions using the CREATE TABLE command and inserting some values into the table using the INSERT command:
2) To verify that the values have been inserted successfully, retrieve the result set using the command below:
3) Use the LIMIT clause in conjunction with the OFFSET clause to skip a subset of records:
In the above query:
- The “LIMIT 5” clause is used to fetch only five records.
- The “OFFSET 2” clause is used to skip the first two records before retrieving the result set of the limit clause.
4) You will get the following output:
