Not without having another column to use as your ordering column. Remember that IN is used to filter your rows. It has nothing to do with the order of the results. If you want ordered results there is 1 and only 1 way to do that, with an ORDER BY clause.

Those are independent clauses.
You could work more to give the correct order.

SELECT empid
FROM consumer
WHERE empid in (2323,1236,5623)
ORDER BY CASE WHEN empid = 2323 THEN 1
WHEN empid = 1236 THEN 2
WHEN empid = 5323 THEN 3
ELSE empid
END

just a thought and maybe provide flexibility if you require....


IF OBJECT_ID('tempdb..sort') IS NOT NULL DROP TABLE sort;

CREATE TABLE #sort
(sortID int not null,
sortvalue int not null);

INSERT #sort VALUES (1, 2323),(2, 1236),(3, 5623);

SELECT c.empid
FROM consumer AS c
INNER JOIN #sort AS s
ON c.empid = s.sortvalue
ORDER BY s.sortID

Yeah, an Oracle forum. We're a MS SQL Server site, so solutions posted here are generally for SQL Server, especially since you never gave any hint you were working with Oracle (posted in a SQL Server 2008 forum)

The solution that I posted? It will work on most RDBMS including Oracle.
