Is this for MySQL or SQL Server? The question title and selected Topic Area don't match.

Are there Branch values that are actually null, as your data seems to show them as 0?

Anyway, this might work for you:

select *
from my_table as m
where Branch is not null
or not exists (select 1 from my_table where Location=m.Location and Branch is not null)

Open in new window

Try
select *
from tab1
where (location,branch) in(select location,max(branch)
from tab1
group by location)

Open in new window

Slightly convoluted but:

Select location,branch
INTO #tmp
from <yourtable>

Delete from #tmp
where branch = 0 and location in (select location from #tmp where branch > 0)

Select location,branch
from #tmp
order by location

I've requested that this question be deleted for the following reason:

Hi,

It appears our account was used to post this question, but we cannot locate the asker.  I do not know if the experts' suggestions worked, or if a different solution was found, or even if the question became moot.  It's also possible the asker is no longer here.  I apologize for the inconvenience.

I think it's more appropriate to just accept a solution here.

I recommend a split between http:#a39984883 and http:#a40137964

I'm reasonably sure the technique used in the other given solution (by HuaMinChen) would not work, as I don't think you can use IN with multiple columns. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.
