The SQL OR condition is used in a SQL query to create a SQL statement where records are returned when any one of the condition met. It can be used in a SELECT statement, INSERT statement, UPDATE statement or DELETE statement.

Let’s see the syntax for OR condition:

  1. SELECT columns

  3. WHERE condition 1
  4. OR condition 2;
