Hi,

Here is a way in which we can find nth max or top n max salaries from emp table...

SELECT SAL FROM EMP A WHERE N<=(SELECT COUNT(DISTINCT SAL) FROM EMP B WHERE A.SAL<=B.SAL);

This is one way to find top n salaries. But execute this and check EXPLAIN results so that u will get exact optimization. If you have any other queries an your mind apply Explain on them and compare... ok

Bye,
Reddy.

Srikanth,
This was answered earlier,

SELECT *
FROM TEST.TABLE1 T1
WHERE 5 = ( SELECT COUNT(DISTINCT T2.NUM)
FROM TEST.TABLE2 T2
WHERE T2.NUM >= T1.NUM)
ORDER BY NUM DESC ;;
