Sorting

Recommended Posts

How do you perform multiple sorts. For example "ORDER BY "X" DESC". What if I wanted to order first by x, then y. How would I do that...

ORDER BY "X" DESC AND ORDER BY "Y" DESC???

is this it according to myql
[code]
SELECT * FROM t1 ORDER BY key_part1 DESC, key_part2 ASC;
[/code]


[code]
You use ORDER BY on different keys:

SELECT * FROM t1 ORDER BY key1, key2;

You use ORDER BY on non-consecutive parts of a key:

SELECT * FROM t1 WHERE key2=constant ORDER BY key_part2;

You mix ASC and DESC:

SELECT * FROM t1 ORDER BY key_part1 DESC, key_part2 ASC;

The key used to fetch the rows is not the same as the one used in the ORDER BY:

SELECT * FROM t1 WHERE key2=constant ORDER BY key1;

You are joining many tables, and the columns in the ORDER BY are not all from the first
