anyone tell me the sql query for this ?

What have you tried? You give no example code, so we have no information to help you with .. looks like a simple case of sorting and grouping to me.

select unique or select distinct?

Looking at the numbers hes adding the results together.

Yeah LizR, remarkable sight you have!

select sum(experience) from table... where...?

Well Ive given some big hints up earlier too.. but yes, the SQL for it should be a real simple 1 line uncomplex answer.. Im interested to see what the original posters tried so far.

That wasn't easy for me to see and if you hadn't pointed it out I don't know if I would have caught it.

how in the world did you see that randomly?

Because to me its obvious :) - Im that odd.

Of course it would help if the initial poster could define their requirements in proper terms it would help them help themselves.

Far too many posts are a bunch almost nonsensical jabberings and with a final comment of all but "code please" .. if you cant define clearly what you want, its highly likely you wont be able to code it either.

I am not clear about your table because what is entity in your table.

E.empname, E.companyname as 'Company Name', Sum(E.experience) as 'Experience'
FROM employee E
GROUP BY E.empname, E.companyname

really thanks for ur great help

If its fixed, then mark it as solved
