Mysql select only English characters


Let's say I have the Name column with the following values:


I need to select only those values where every character of the Name is in English alphabet
a..z and A..Z and numbers 0..9

In the list above the 1. and 4. row would be selected

Thank you

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

select name
from my_table
where name regexp '^[a-zA-Z0-9]*$'

Open in new window

If you also want to allow spaces, then use pattern
'^[a-zA-Z0-9 ]*$'
