Hi,

A Table contains two columns, column1 and column2 respectively, where these columns represent some relationship which shows a > c , b > d, a >d, c >d. basically column1 > column2
 column1 column2
 a       c
 d       b
 a       d
 c       d


I want the output to be greatest,next greatest, next next greatest like (n,n-1,n-2 etc) like
a -> c -> d - > b


It would be of great help if you could help in doing this.
Thanks in advance
Regards,
Sibghat

In case you did not notice, there is a forum specifically for homeworks near the bottom of the main frame.

If you really want to solve this problem on your own, search for "PIVOT QUERY".

In a standard hierarchical query, your value of 'b' won't show up. It is nowhere present as a value of column1. If we take column2 to generate the hierarchy, then value 'a' won't show up. Normally, a hierarchy will be something like this:
current_id parent_id
    a         NULL
    c          a
    d          c
    b          c

simple connect by, lots of examples.

I'd have given you one with this data, but no create, no inserts, no look

Hi Michel
This is what i tried.


create table si (c1 varchar2(3),c2 varchar2(3))

insert into si values('a','c')
insert into si values('d','b')
insert into si values('a','d')
insert into si values('c','d')


SELECT SYS_CONNECT_BY_PATH(C1||C2,
'>') FROM SI
START WITH C1 = 'A'
CONNECT BY PRIOR C1 = C2

No Rows Returned

Thanks
Sib

1/ There is no 'A' in the table data
2/ The prior relation in the opposite
3/ The expression is SYS_CONNECT_BY_PATH is not the correct one

SELECT MAX (SYS_CONNECT_BY_PATH (DECODE (LEVEL, 1, C1, C2), ' ')
)KEEP (DENSE_RANK LAST ORDER BY LEVEL) "Relationship"
FROM SI
CONNECT BY PRIOR C2 = C1
