``` emp_id | emp_name | salary  | grade
--------+----------+---------+-------
63679 | SANDRINE |  900.00 |     1
68736 | ADNRES   | 1200.00 |     1

Explanation:

The said query in SQL that selects the employee ID, employee name, salary, and grade from the 'employees' and 'salary_grade' tables where salary falls within the minimum and maximum salary ranges in the 'salary_grade' table.

An implicit cross join builds between the tables 'employees' and 'salary_grade' which means that each row in the 'employees' table is combined with every row in the 'salary_grade' table and the WHERE clause filters the results to include only those employees whose salary falls within the minimum and maximum salary ranges in the 'salary_grade' table.

## 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;
```
