Where Clause in SQL Server and SQL Server Operators(TSQL)


We use WHERE clause to filter when reading, updating, and deleting data from a table. If we run select, Update, or delete statements without using WHERE clause, we will be processing the entire table. Let’s do these operations with an example.


First, we create a table as below and add a few records to this table.

Using WHERE Clause With SELECT:

We read the records with ID 1 as follows.

Using WHERE Clause With UPDATE:

With the following query, we are updating the Name column of the records with ID 1 as “Nurullah”.

Using WHERE Clause With DELETE:

We are deleting records with ID 1 from the table with the following query.

We can use the following operators in WHERE clause:

Comparison Opertors:

Where ID=1

If ID is 1

Where ID>1

If ID is greater than 1

Where ID>=1

If ID is 1 and greater than 1

Where ID<1

If ID is less than 1

Where ID<=1

If ID is 1 and less than 1

Where ID<>1

If ID is not 1

“AND” and “OR”:

Logical Operators:

We can use it as follows:

If the Name column has a Nuru expression and the ID is 1


If the name column has an ERDEM expression and ID is 2


If ID is between 0 and 2


If the name column contains a Nuru expression


If ID is one of the values of 1,2,3,4


If all of the values returned from the subquery meets the condition.


If a value is returned from the subquery.


We use NOT operator with other operators. For example, "Where Name NOT Like '%Nuru%'" means that if the name column doenst contains a Nuru expression.

SOME or ANY(They are equivalent):

If any of the values returned from the subquery meets the condition.
