Problem:

The Employee table holds all employees including their managers. Every employee has an Id, and there is also a column for the manager Id.

+----+-------+--------+-----------+
| Id | Name  | Salary | ManagerId |
+----+-------+--------+-----------+
| 1  | Joe   | 70000  | 3         |
| 2  | Henry | 80000  | 4         |
| 3  | Sam   | 60000  | NULL      |
| 4  | Max   | 90000  | NULL      |
+----+-------+--------+-----------+
Given the `Employee` table, write a SQL query that finds out employees who earn more than their managers. For the above table, Joe is the only employee who earns more than his manager.
+----------+
| Employee |
+----------+
| Joe      |
+----------+

Solution: 简单的条件查询,SQL语句如下:

1
2
select e.Name from Employee e, Employee m
where e.Salary > m.Salary and e.ManagerId = m.Id;
