Hi All,
I have writte a query which retirves data from table using the rownum attribute which works fine:

select * from (select id,count(*) from average a where rownum <= (select count(*) from average) group by id) where rownum < 65501

But when I am trying to retieve the value above 65501 I am not able to fetch the records from the table. Please fine the below which is not working

select * from (select id,count(*) from average a where rownum <= (select count(*) from average) group by id) where >= 65501

Can anyone please let me know how I can retireve the data based on the above query.

Thanks in advance
regards
Prashanth

Prashanth,
If I remember correctly, Oracle only allows less than or equal to logical operators with rownum pseudo-column.
Hence your query using greater than operator does not work.
I'm only guessing, but I think you may be able to use the "between" operator, as in:

Good Luck,
Avi.

This is your original query (see the comments next to your code):



Run the following:



to find the total number of rows associated with the ID group by clause... but as written... you are always showing the numbers for all your rows grouped by ID.
