I have this sql select from many tables by inner join, I wanna order the result by price descending, but its not working, here is my try:

select pl.LeamraCode, pl.EnName as Name, pl.ImgPath, pt.EnProductType, pp.ClientPrice, pp.ClientMaxDiscount as Discount, c.EnCurrencyName as Currency, sq.StockQTY
from ProductList pl inner join ProductType pt
on pl.ProductTypeId = pt.id
inner join StockQTY sq on pl.LeamraCode = sq.LeamraCode
inner join ProductPrice pp on pl.LeamraCode = pp.LeamraCode

If it is of some String datatype, sorting could have problem.

OR

Just to double check, try this modified query (just moved the ClientPrice Column to first)
SELECT  pp.ClientPrice ,
        pl.LeamraCode ,
        pl.EnName AS Name ,
        pl.ImgPath ,
        pt.EnProductType ,
        pp.ClientMaxDiscount AS Discount ,
        c.EnCurrencyName AS Currency ,
        sq.StockQTY
FROM    ProductList pl
        INNER JOIN ProductType pt ON pl.ProductTypeId = pt.id
        INNER JOIN StockQTY sq ON pl.LeamraCode = sq.LeamraCode
        INNER JOIN ProductPrice pp ON pl.LeamraCode = pp.LeamraCode
        INNER JOIN Currency c ON pp.CurrencyId = c.id
ORDER BY pp.ClientPrice DESC

Open in new window


Are you sure still it is sorting not properly (desc) ?

If your answer is some String datatype, try this modified query (Casted)
SELECT  pp.ClientPrice ,
        pl.LeamraCode ,
        pl.EnName AS Name ,
        pl.ImgPath ,
        pt.EnProductType ,
        pp.ClientMaxDiscount AS Discount ,
        c.EnCurrencyName AS Currency ,
        sq.StockQTY
FROM    ProductList pl
        INNER JOIN ProductType pt ON pl.ProductTypeId = pt.id
        INNER JOIN StockQTY sq ON pl.LeamraCode = sq.LeamraCode
        INNER JOIN ProductPrice pp ON pl.LeamraCode = pp.LeamraCode
        INNER JOIN Currency c ON pp.CurrencyId = c.id
ORDER BY CAST(pp.ClientPrice AS DECIMAL(18,2)) DESC
