SELECT DISTINCT (SALARY)
FROM EMPTABLE A
WHERE 5 = (SELECT COUNT (DISTINCT (B.SALARY)) FROM EMPTABLE B
WHERE A.SALARY <= B.SALARY);

First u shud understand the sub query

SELECT COUNT (DISTINCT (B.SALARY)) FROM EMPTABLE B
WHERE A.SALARY <= B.SALARY

In the sub query we are finding the count of employees in emp table having their salary less than or equal to X. (imagine X as some value. The X is taken from emptable of main query and it will be iterated for each salary value).

Now come to main query. It just finds the salary from employee table when the count from sub query matches N (in ur case 5).


Hope u understand...

QUERY : TO FIND OUT THE Nth HIGHEST SALARY

SELECT EMPSAL FROM EMPNEW E1 WHERE n =
(SELECT COUNT(*) FROM EMPNEW E2
WHERE E1.EMPSAL<=E2.EMPSAL);


I GUESS THIS IS ANOTHER WAY OF GETTING THE Nth SALARY.

Thanks & Regards,

JKBYTES.
