filter out mySQL table name

Dear all,

right now try to filter out table name with prefxi tblT_ so we don't want this kind of table from showing out, my query is :

 SELECT  DISTINCT TABLE_NAME 	
    FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES
    WHERE TABLE_SCHEMA=<databaseName>  and table_type<> 'view' and TABLE_NAME  NOT LIKE 'tblT_%';

Open in new window


and I try to test the result set by only show out table has prefix like that:

 SELECT  DISTINCT TABLE_NAME 	
    FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES
    WHERE TABLE_SCHEMA=<databaseName>  and table_type<> 'view' and TABLE_NAME  LIKE 'tblT_%';

Open in new window


but it seems MySQL will return all table with name prefix with tblT% instead of what we want : tblT_xxxxxx

how to solve this ?

You are using the  wildcard chareacter in your query so you need to 'tell' My SQL engine that you want it in the name i.e.

use it like this

'
SELECT  DISTINCT TABLE_NAME 	
    FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES
    WHERE TABLE_SCHEMA=<databaseName>  and table_type<> 'view' and TABLE_NAME  LIKE 'tblT\_%';
