How to get the fourth highest value using MySQL query?

MySQLMySQLi Database

To get the fourth-highest value, use LIMIT OFFSET along with ORDER BY. Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable
(
   Amount int
);
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.88 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable values(980);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.15 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values(670);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.19 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values(890);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.15 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values(995);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.25 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values(198);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.10 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement −

mysql> select *from DemoTable;

This will produce the following output −

+--------+
| Amount |
+--------+
|    980 |
|    670 |
|    890 |
|    995 |
|    198 |
+--------+
5 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Following is the query to get the fourth-highest value −

mysql> select *from DemoTable order by Amount desc limit 1 offset 3;

This will produce the following output −

+--------+
| Amount |
+--------+
|    670 |
+--------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)
