Hi,

1) I need a SQL query to fetch the 3rd maximum salary from a table.
2) Also need to get the list of employees (From table A) whose salary is greater than the average salary of the employees from another table (table B).

Thanks,
Vel

Vel, this is a forum not a software factory, it would be good if you could post what you have tried so far.

To select the third max. You can try this.
Code:

  SELECT MAX(Sal) FROM tablename           
 WHERE Sal <(SELECT MAX(Sal) FROM  tablename
       WHERE Sal < (SELECT MAX(Sal) FROM tablename));

Thanks a lot birdy.

Acevedo : I'm extremely sorry for that. I have tried but didn't get any hint for the query.
