Hi to all,
I created following table

===================================================

create table man(id integer, name varchar(20), city varchar(20), age integer, dept integer)

===================================================

I want name and maximum age of person residing in 'mumbai'. I wrote following query, but got the error like 'can not include name with max() fuction since it is not the part of it and there is no GROUP BY clause'.

==================================================

SELECT name, MAX(age) FROM man where city='mumbai'

==================================================

It displays the age qhen I ran follo. query.

==================================================

SELECT MAX(age) FROM man where city='mumbai'.

=================================================

How can I get Both i.e. name and age.

Do you want to know the name of the Mumbai person of maximum age? Then you have to group by age, select the maximum of it and find a person of that same age:

select name from man m1 where m1.city = 'Mumbai' and m1.age = (select max(m2.age) from man m2);

Or do you want to find the oldest person in Mumbai?

select name from man m1 where m1.city = 'Mumbai' and m1.age = (select max(m2.age) from man m2 where m2.city = 'Mumbai');
