In this tutorial, we will learn how to execute an SQL query to Select Only Rows With Max Value On A Column that we can do with the help of the max function to see how we can do so following the code given below.
SQL Query to Select Rows With Max Value Of Column
As at times, we need to select only those rows which have maximum values in the column for the same we have a phrase as max which is being used for getting the maximum value in a column.
And provides the maximum in the whole column. In addition to it we can also provide a group by to group all he same record to get the maximum in each section.
To select the row with the maximum value in a row we use the max and where clauses and to understand the execution look at the example given below and learn how to perform it.
SELECT column1, column2, ..., columnN FROM table_name WHERE column_name = (SELECT MAX(column_name) FROM table_name)
Here is the Line of code which can get us the row with the maximum value on executing.
As there is a probability that there might be more than one row that contains maximum values and it will display all of those rows which could have maximum value irrespective of the number of rows that could be displayed.
To check on the number of rows to be displayed we have a limit to set so that we will get the limited row or rows as per our requirement to implement the same with a limit following the code given below.
SELECT column1, column2, ..., columnN FROM table_name WHERE column_name = (SELECT MAX(column_name) FROM table_name) LIMIT 1;
And here we have given the limit as 1 so it will display only one row and we can give this number as per our requirements, Prvised the number of rows with maximum should be more than the number that we gave in the limit otherwise it will display only a shorter number of rows.
