To use the ORDER BY clause in an alphanumeric column in Oracle, you can simply specify the column name in your query along with the ORDER BY keyword. Here is an example:


SELECT column_name FROM table_name ORDER BY alphanumeric_column_name;


For example, if you have a table named "employees" with a column named "employee_name" containing alphanumeric values, you can order the results alphabetically by employee name using the following query:


SELECT employee_name FROM employees ORDER BY employee_name;


This will sort the results in ascending order by default. If you want to sort the results in descending order, you can add the DESC keyword after the column name like this:


SELECT employee_name FROM employees ORDER BY employee_name DESC;


This will sort the results in descending order based on the alphanumeric values in the "employee_name" column.
