SQL Query to display duplicates ?

Hi,
I have a table of Customers.  In some cases the names are the same for various customer ID's.  For example (see below),  Clinton is attached to 3 customers:
CUSTID  NAME
------|----------
39    | Carter   
40    | Reagan   
41    | Carter     
42    | Clinton  
44    | Clinton    
45    | Clinton

Open in new window

I would like to write a query that will give me a list of the duplicates (and only the duplicates) ordered by name, with a result something like:
CUSTID  NAME
------|----------
39    | Carter   
41    | Carter     
42    | Clinton  
44    | Clinton    
45    | Clinton 

Open in new window

Any suggestions?

In it's simplest form something like this:
SELECT
	*
FROM
	customers
WHERE
	[name] IN(
		SELECT
			[Name]
		FROM
			customers
		GROUP BY
			[name]
		HAVING
			COUNT(1) > 1)

Ah yes -- I always forget about HAVING and then when I remember it, I can't seem to make it work.  (I'll read up on it)  
I will employ your suggestion.  Thanks!  
(I found another example using a join to the same table.  If I can get that to work, I'll post it here.)

Thanks!
I will work with both solutions, so that I can understand -- I am new-ish to SQL and want to learn from these examples you've posted.
