Few Questions and Answers in learning SQL Group By Functions

IT 63500.000000
SALES 46500.000000

Group by in SQL Statement

Results of Using MAX and MIN

DEPT_NAME Maximum Salary Minimum Salary
EXECUTIVE 65000.00 65000.00
IT 70000.00 57000.00
SALES 48000.00 45000.00
SHIPPING 50000.00 35000.00

Query using SUM With Group by statement

The following SQL statement finds the Payroll by Department:

Group by statement using SUM

Results

DEPT_NAME PAYROLL
EXECUTIVE 65000.00
IT 127000.00
SALES 93000.00
SHIPPING 85000.00

Excluding group results: The having clause

Use the HAVING clause to restrict groups:

  1. Rows are grouped.
  2. The group function is applied.
  3. Groups matching the Having clause are displayed.

Syntax of Group by HAVING in SQL

Example: The following SQL statement finds the Total Payroll exceeding 80,000.00 by Department.

SQL Statement Using Having Clause

Results of using Having Clause

DEPT_NAME PAYROLL
IT 127000.00
SALES 93000.00
SHIPPING 85000.00

Based on the example of using HAVING Clause, it displays the DEPT_NAME and PAYROLL that exceeds 80000. You will also notice that the EXECUTIVE department has been excluded and the list is sorted by Department Name.

NOTE: You can use the HAVING clause to specify which groups are to be displayed, and thus, you further restrict the groups on the basis of aggregate information.

Summary

In this lesson, you should have learned how to:

  • Use the functions AVG, COUNT, MAX, MIN, SUM
  • Write queries that use the Group By clause
  • Write queries that use the Having Clause
