Get nth highest and lowest salary of an employee
One student of me asked "how can we get nth highest and lowest salary on an employee ?". In this article I am going to expose, how can we achieve this in SQL Server.
Suppose we have employee name and salary as shown in below fig.
Query to get nth(3rd) Highest Salary
Select TOP 1 Salary as '3rd Highest Salary' from (SELECT DISTINCT TOP 3 Salary from Employee ORDER BY Salary DESC) a ORDER BY Salary ASC
Query to get nth(3rd) Lowest Salary
Select TOP 1 Salary as '3rd Lowest Salary' from (SELECT DISTINCT TOP 3 Salary from Employee ORDER BY Salary ASC) a ORDER BY Salary DESC
In this article, I explain how can you get nth highest and lowest salary of an employee. I hope after reading this article you will be able to do this. I would like to have feedback from my blog readers. Please post your feedback, question, or comments about this article.
