HI All,

I Have a table like below,

CODE -->

EmpID  Name  Salary  Department 

I want to find the employees in each department who earn more than average salary in that department. How to write this query in SQL. Please help. I'm new to SQL Programming.

I tried the below query but it did not give the correct output.ponder

CODE -->

select * from Employee E1 where Salary > (select avg(salary) from Employee E2  where E2.Department = E1.Department ) 

Thank you.

RE: Related to Average

There will be a couple of steps to do. First you need to get the 'average salary in that [every] department.'

Select Department, AVG(Salary) As AVG_Salary
From Employee Group By Department

And the second step would be to incorpoprate step one into:

Select E.EmpID, E.Name, E.Salary, A.AVG_Salary, E.Department 
From Employee E, 
(Select Department, AVG(Salary) As AVG_Salary
From Employee Group By Department) A
Where E.Department = A.Department
  And E.Salary > A.AVG_Salary
