Hi Madduri,

Average is a group function which gives a single result by taking a group of rows as input. So we will have only one average for a column. Please clarify us about your question in more detail.

Eg: select avg(sal) from myuser.emp;

Returns average of salary which is only one value. So what is the second average vale?

Thanks,
Reddy.

Hi NRS,

Sorry I am not getting. What you are trying for. U mean to find the average of salries after exclusing the highest salary. But as I know there is no concept of second average??? If I am wrong please correct me with explanation.

Thanks,
Reddy.
