NEED HELP

Return a list of employees ordered by salary with the highest at the top:

SELECT FIRST_NAME, LAST_NAME, SALARY FROM EMPLOYEES

1 Answer

I think I answered this one on your other question, but I'll stick it here too - what you want is:

ORDER BY SALARY DESC

What you want to tell it to do is sort the salaries in descending order, since it asks for the highest one first.

You are right!!!
