Need help with a Query

Hi Experts,

I have the following data.

 ID         VendorID      ManufacturerPartNo      ManuID      PartCost         PreferredVendor
4344      4            1492-EAJ35                    17             108       
4345      36            1492-EAJ35                    17             108.11       
4346      5            1492-EAJ35                    17             110                    Y
4347      25            1492-EAJ35                    17              0       
4348      21            1492-EAJ35                    17              0       
4349      7            1492-EAJ35                    17              0       

I want the record with PreferredVendor is "Y" first then all other records ordered by PartCost

 ID         VendorID      ManufacturerPartNo      ManuID      PartCost         PreferredVendor
4346      5            1492-EAJ35                    17             110                    Y
4347      25            1492-EAJ35                    17              0       
4348      21            1492-EAJ35                    17              0       
4349      7            1492-EAJ35                    17              0
4344      4            1492-EAJ35                    17             108       
4345      36            1492-EAJ35                    17             108.11

Is it possible to get this output with a query.

Thanks in advance.

SELECT
[insert your column list here]
FROM
[tablename]
ORDER BY
PreferredVendor,
PartCost

Open in new window

This will sort first by PreferredVendor then by PartCost.
You may need to alter the direction of the sort order by adding either an ASC or DESC keyword to sort by ascending or descending order. You can alter the sort order for each order by part like this:
...
ORDER BY
PreferredVendor DESC,
PartCost ASC

Open in new window

That will order first by PreferredVendor in descending order then by PartCost in ascending order. The ASC keyword is not necessary since ascending order is implied.
