In this example, INDEX is applied to ' ' (the SPACE character) in the value strings in the Name column of the Employee table.

   SELECT name 
   FROM employee 
   WHERE INDEX(name, ' ') > 6 ; 

INDEX examines the Name field and returns all names where a space appears in a character position beyond the sixth (character position seven or higher).
