This was something that I felt like I knew intuitively (“I’ve written at least 10,000 SQL queries, some of them were really complicated! I must know this!“) but I struggled to actually articulate what the order was.

Okay, obviously many SQL queries do start with SELECT (and actually this post is only about SELECT queries, not INSERTs or anything). But! Yesterday I was working on an explanation of window functions, and I found myself googling “can you filter based on the result of a window function”. via Pocket

"Okay, obviously many SQL queries do start with SELECT (and actually this post is only about SELECT queries, not INSERTs or anything).

But! Yesterday I was working on an explanation of window functions, and I found myself googling “can you filter based on the result of a window function”. As in – can you filter the result of a window function in a WHERE or HAVING or something?

Eventually I concluded “window functions must run after WHERE and GROUP BY happen, so you can’t do it”. But this led me to a bigger question – what order do SQL queries actually run in?.

This was something that I felt like I knew intuitively (“I’ve written at least 10,000 SQL queries, some of them were really complicated! I must know this!“) but I struggled to actually articulate what the order was.

SQL queries happen in this order
I looked up the order, and here it is! (SELECT isn’t the first thing, it’s like the 5th thing!) (here it is in a tweet)."
