By default The ORDER BY keyword sorts the records in ascending order. We can apply by ORDER BY on more than one column as well.

  • Table_name                                     : The name of the table from where you want to fetch the data.

  • Column1Name, Column2Name        : The name of the columns of the table which you want to uniquely fetch.
