# SQL MIN() Function

## The MIN() Function

The MIN() function returns the smallest value of the selected column.### SQL MIN() Syntax

SELECT MIN(column_name) FROM table_name |

## SQL MIN() Example

We have the following "Orders" table:O_Id | OrderDate | OrderPrice | Customer |
---|---|---|---|

1 | 2008/11/12 | 1000 | Hansen |

2 | 2008/10/23 | 1600 | Nilsen |

3 | 2008/09/02 | 700 | Hansen |

4 | 2008/09/03 | 300 | Hansen |

5 | 2008/08/30 | 2000 | Jensen |

6 | 2008/10/04 | 100 | Nilsen |

Now we want to find the smallest value of the "OrderPrice" column.

We use the following SQL statement:

SELECT MIN(OrderPrice) AS SmallestOrderPrice FROM Orders |

The result-set will look like this:

SmallestOrderPrice |
---|

100 |
