I need to select maximum of the Emp_id values from SQL server 2005 table.I was using the command which selects max value till 10 but after that it fails to pick max value of emp id from the table.(Actually it picks up Max value using by looking at 1st digit only,so till 9 its fine, but after that it shows 9>11 or 9>57 etc.So please tell me SQL query for finding max value in Emp id column.Thanx.
MY sql query used:-
select MAX(emp_id) from table_name
Change the column type of Emp_id in numeric.
Right now it's alphanumeric, and that's why '9' > '11'.
