How do I find second highest value from a table?


If you want to find the second highest value from a table, then simply order by the field you are interested in and take the second row, like this:

<?php

$query 
mysql_query("SELECT number FROM table ORDER BY number DESC LIMIT 2");
$second_highest mysql_result($query,1,0);
echo 
"the answer to your question is $second_highest";
?>


And that's really all that there is to it... thanks for submitting your question!
