To convert Oracle Query to SQL SERVER Query

Hi There ,
I've got this query which runs in Oracle , but the same query doesnt work in SQL Server

Select deal_no , deal_date
From (Select deal_no , deal_date From deals_hdr Where deal_no > 5000) ;

Is it possible to convert this query to ORACLE

Hi Saju

Change your query as shown below. It'll surely work in SQL Server.

Select deal_no , deal_date
From (Select deal_no , deal_date From deals_hdr Where deal_no > 5000) AS DH ;

The trick is you refer the subquery by an alias. SQL Server has been designed to accept it only in this format.

Cheers,

Rajesh

Select deal_no , deal_date
From deals_hdr where  exists (Select deal_no , deal_date From deals_hdr Where deal_no > 5000) ;

will work.
 I want to know why oracle allows the above query while sql server does not.
