SQL query for finding the 2nd highest salary from an employee table.

This is a very simple SQL query for finding the 2nd highest salary from an employee table.

A very common question in .NET interviews. The query is pretty self explanatory.

select  top(1)[Name],Salary from Employee
where  salary  not in (select top (1) salary from employee order by salary desc) ORDER BY SALARY DES

– Change the top parameter to (nth highest salary – 1)
