How do I query the 'info' field?

The following: info contains "mysql" produces error that it's not a field or protocol name. But 'info' is a field. It's the last field in the display on the right. I've tried uppercase and lowercase.

'info' is a column, therefore not a field. The term field is restricted to dissected parts of the frame, or generated thereof. Columns can be filled based on these fields, or from other sources. Therefore you cannot use a display filter on the info column.

On the other hand, the Info column can be queried using tshark and some external tools such as findstr or grep. As an example, see my answer to this question.
