How do I select columns with a certain value?

P: 1
I am trying to figure out if it is possible to select all the column names that have a value of "1", and not a null or value of zero from my table.

I can SELECT all columns and get the names, but what I want is the query to return the names of only those columns that have a data value of "1".

I thought of doing a WHERE but I am unsure of how to specify the data value instead of a column name for the selection.

A WHERE clause is what you need.

  1. SELECT my_field FROM my_table WHERE my_field = 1
  2.
