How you define "rank" ?

if you need rank of the records compare with a value in a column, try use the "Order By" clause.

Example:

Select * from Student Order By ExamPoints DESC

This will returns the student list in descending order comparing the Exam Points, for example.

Hi Gonaz,

Example of ranking Students by Score. Say if you want to get the Top 10 Students based on score or average score:

use the following SQL script:

SELECT TOP 10 STUDENT_NAME, STUDENT_SCORE
FROM STUDENT_GRADES
ORDER BY STUDENT_SCORE DESC;

or

SELECT TOP 10 STUDENT_NAME, Avg(STUDENT_SCORE) AS [AVE SCORE]
FROM STUDENT_GRADES
GROUP BY STUDENT_NAME
ORDER BY Avg(STUDENT_GRADES.STUDENT_SCORE) DESC;

Hope this helps,
