MySQL – Show Tables in a Database

To show all the tables in a selected database (currently working):

SHOW TABLES;

To show all the tables in ANOTHER database:

SHOW TABLES IN other_database;

To show a table who you forget the exact name, you may use the wildcard(%):

SHOW TABLES IN other_database LIKE “%salary%;
