EXCEPT returns rows from the left input query that the right input query does not return. Both the left and right input query operators output distinct rows when using INTERSECT.
The results from both tables are combined in UNION. UNION ALL merges all duplicate rows from two or more result sets into a single set. INTERSECT takes the rows that are common in both result sets and joins them together. EXCEPT uses the rows from the first set of results, but not from the second.
The EXCEPT clause is the polar opposite of the INTERSECT clause. In this situation, the result includes all rows save the common rows of the two SELECT commands.
In SQL, the INTERSECT clause is used to combine two SELECT queries, however the dataset produced by the INTERSECT command is the intersection of the two SELECT statements' data-sets. To put it another way, the INTERSECT query will only return rows that are similar to both SELECT statements.
Despite the fact that MySQL lacks an INTERSECT operator, you may easily replicate this type of query by utilising the IN or EXISTS clauses, depending on the intricacy of the INTERSECT query.
