To sort column values in MySQL when the results are grouped, you can use the ORDER BY clause. Here's an example query:

1
2
3
4
SELECT column1, column2, COUNT(column1) as count
FROM your_table
GROUP BY column1, column2
ORDER BY count DESC;


In this example, replace your_table with the actual name of your table, column1 and column2 with the actual names of the columns you want to group by and sort, and count with the name you want to assign to the count of each group. The ORDER BY count DESC statement will sort the results in descending order based on the count column.


You can also sort by other columns using the same ORDER BY clause. For example, to sort by column1 in ascending order and then by the count column in descending order, you can modify the query like this:

1
2
3
4
SELECT column1, column2, COUNT(column1) as count
FROM your_table
GROUP BY column1, column2
ORDER BY column1 ASC, count DESC;


Remember to adjust the column names and table name to match your specific scenario.
