By Hardik Savani April 16, 2024 Category : Laravel MySql

Whenever, you need to use GROUP_CONCAT with differente separator(I mean default separator is ',', But you want to change '@','#','&' etc as you want). then you have to use use SEPARATOR keyword in GROUP_CONCAT(). If you are working on laravel then you have to also use DB::raw() for write GROUP_CONCAT() inside the this function.

So, Basically how to change seprator in group_concat(), In following example i change ',' separator into '@'.you can use the following example how to use in laravel 6, laravel 7, laravel 8, laravel 9, laravel 10 and laravel 11 versions.



namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

use App\Models\Item;

use DB;

class DemoController extends Controller



* Write code on Method


* @return response()


public function index(Request $request)


$items = Item::select(



DB::raw("(GROUP_CONCAT( SEPARATOR '@')) as `cities`"))







Try this.....
