SQL SOME Operator

The SOME operator in SQL is used to compare value with a single column set of values returned by subquery. SOME operator in sql must match at least one value in subquery and that value must be preceded by comparison operators.

 

Generally we will use this SOME operator in WHERE clause to check whether required column value matching with set of values returned by subquery or not. Syntax for SOME operator in SQL will be like as shown below

Syntax of SQL SOME Operator

Following sql statement is the syntax of sql some operator

 

SELECT column1,column2 FROM tablename WHERE column1 = SOME(SELECT column1 FROM tablename WHERE column1 ='somevalue')

If you observe above SQL SOME operator syntax we will get values where column1 values matches with column1 data returned by subquery otherwise it will not return any data. We will check this operator with example for that create “EmployeeDetails” table by using below script in your database

 

create table EmployeeDetails(empid int, empname varchar(50),designation varchar(50),salary int,Location varchar(50))

 

insert into EmployeeDetails

values(1,'suresh','software engineer',25000,'chennai'),

(2,'rohini','AEO',15000,'chennai'),

(3,'madhavsai','business analyst',50000,'nagpur'),

(4,'mahendra','CA',75000,'guntur'),

(5,'sateesh','Doctor',65000,'guntur')

 

select * from EmployeeDetails

Once we run above script our table “EmployeeDetails” will create and result will be like as shown below
