Order of Queries in SQL

It may sometimes be confusing to remember the order of queries in SQL. Here is my way to quickly remember:

To remember the order of SQL queries using the common clauses you mentioned (SELECT, FROM, WHERE, GROUP BY, HAVING, ORDER BY), you can create a simple mnemonic like “SF-WGHO.” Here’s how it works:

  • Select
  • From
  • Where
  • Group By
  • Having
  • Order By

You can think of it as “SF-W-GHO” to help you recall the typical order of these clauses when constructing SQL queries.
