Hi,

I have a SQL table called Orders in my SQL Server 200 database and I'm trying to get the 10 customers with the most sales. My Statement looks like this:

Code:

SELECT CustomerID, SUM(OrderDollars) FROM Orders GROUP BY CustomerID ORDER BY SUM(OrderDollars) DESC



This SQL statement works perfectly and the only problem is that I get all customers, not just the top 10. Iíve tried to put LIMIT 10 at the end of the SQL statement (just like in MySQL), but I got an error.

Can anybody help me to get the only the 10 customers with the most sales?


Thanks,

Sharp

T-SQL (the SQL Server version of SQL) has a keyword TOP which does what you want. Just change your SQL statement to:

Code:

SELECT TOP 10 CustomerID, SUM(OrderDollars) FROM Orders GROUP BY CustomerID ORDER BY SUM(OrderDollars) DESC




Cheers,
