I have a table that has the following date
rank1        rank2   rank3           ID
1      NULL      NULL      112
NULL      2      NULL      112
NULL      NULL      NULL      112

I want to write a query that returns

ID   Rank1 Rank2 Rank3

I am not sure about how to get it all on a single row, will have to continue looking in on it.
But to get everything that is not null.

from table where rank1 is not null or rank2 is not null or rank3 is not null.

That will return all rows, but to do it as a single row, that I am unsure of?

See if this works for you:


select ID,
       (select Rank1 from table t2 where Rank1 is not null and t2.ID = t1.ID) as Rank1,
       (select Rank2 from table t3 where Rank2 is not null and t3.ID = t1.ID) as Rank2,
       (select Rank3 from table t4 where Rank3 is not null and t4.ID = t1.ID) as Rank3
  from table t1
