You can get your custom table data by following way

Method - 1: By using Factory Method


protected $_connection;

public function __construct(
    \Magento\Framework\App\ResourceConnection $resource
) {
    $this->_connection = $resource->getConnection();

public function getTableData()
    $myTable = $this->_connection->getTableName('table_name');
    $sql     = $this->_connection->select()->from(
         ["tn" => $myTable]
    $result  = $this->_connection->fetchAll($sql);
    return $result;

Then you can get your custom table data in phtml file

$myTableData = $this->getTableData();


Method - 2: By using objectManager


$objectManager = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
$resource = $objectManager->get('Magento\Framework\App\ResourceConnection');
$connection = $resource->getConnection();
$tableName = $resource->getTableName('your_table'); //gives table name

//Select Data from table
$sql = $connection->select()->from(
         ["tn" => $tableName]
$result = $connection->fetchAll($sql);

  • @balu Follow method-2 if you have not block file. you can use method-2 directly in your product view file. enable path hint and use this code where you want custom table data in phtml. May 19, 2017 at 6:38

In this case, you should create a custom model for this custom Table.

Follow this https://www.softprodigy.com/store/article/create-model-and-collection-for-custom-table-in-magento2/ for reference.

In this this you should declare Model, Resource Model , Collection class..


You have to create block and template. And create a layout in to make a link between block.php and template.php. then using $block object you can call block method.
