Hello Experts,
Can anyone tell me how to select a specific column first in the select statement then all other columns in the table?
In Sybase I can do something like this:
select column_name,* from table_name;

Thanks in advance

Yes, that works. But remember that * will list the same columns again - something like "select all other columns" does not exist in SQL ;-).
