Pictorial Presentation:

SQL exercises on employee Database: List the id, name, salary, and location of the employees working at PERTH, or MELBOURNE with an experience over 10 years

Sample table: employees

Sample table: department

Sample Solution:

SELECT e.emp_id,
FROM employees e,
     department d
WHERE e.dep_id = d.dep_id
  AND d.dep_location IN ('PERTH',
              FROM age(CURRENT_DATE, hire_date)) > 10;

Sample Output:

 emp_id | emp_name | dep_id | salary  | dep_location
  64989 | ADELYN   |   3001 | 1700.00 | PERTH
  65271 | WADE     |   3001 | 1350.00 | PERTH
(2 rows)


The given query in SQL that selects the employee ID, name, department ID, salary, and department location of employees who work in the departments located in either 'PERTH' or 'MELBOURNE' and whose hire date is more than 10 months ago from the current date.

The statement joins the 'employees' and 'department' tables based on the common column dep_id.

The "WHERE" clause restricts the results to employees whose department location is either 'PERTH' or 'MELBOURNE' using the "IN" operator, and it further filters the results to employees whose hire date is more than 10 months ago from the current date using the "age" and "EXTRACT" functions. The "age" function calculates the difference between the current date and the hire date, and the "EXTRACT" function extracts the month value from the result of the "age" function.

SQL: Tips of the Day

Grouped LIMIT in PostgreSQL: Show the first N rows for each group?

db=# SELECT * FROM xxx;
 id | section_id | name
  1 |          1 | A
  2 |          1 | B
  3 |          1 | C
  4 |          1 | D
  5 |          2 | E
  6 |          2 | F
  7 |          3 | G
  8 |          2 | H
(8 rows)

I need the first 2 rows (ordered by name) for each section_id, i.e. a result similar to:

id | section_id | name
  1 |          1 | A
  2 |          1 | B
  5 |          2 | E
  6 |          2 | F
  7 |          3 | G
(5 rows)

PostgreSQL v9.3 you can do a lateral join

select distinct t_outer.section_id, t_top.id, t_top.name from t t_outer
join lateral (
    select * from t t_inner
    where t_inner.section_id = t_outer.section_id
    order by t_inner.name
    limit 2
) t_top on true
order by t_outer.section_id;
