DO

This MySQL statement suppresses the display of an expression's results. I can't think of much point to this one. Please let me know you can.

Syntax

Below is the syntax for this command. Text within square brackets (i.e, [ and ] ) are optional. Choices are separated by bars (i.e, | ). Ellipses preceded by a comma indicates a repeating pattern. Ellipses before or after syntax are used to highlight a relevant except from the larger syntax. Text displayed in italic letters represent text that should be replaced with the specific names related to the database (e.g., column with the name of the column).

DO expression[,  . . . ] | (statement)

Explanation

This MySQL statement suppresses the display of an expression's results. Multiple expressions may be given in a comma-separated list. As of Version 4.1 of MySQL, subqueries may be given.

Examples

DO (SET @company = 'Van de Lay Industries' );

The example above of this MySQL statement creates the @company variable with the value given, but without displaying any results.
