do both of the fields contain values and are they both numeric? It sure seems strange 
to me. I actually created a test and it worked fine, just copied your query.

there is no error, it just does not pull out the right values. Just puts out
10 listings and the top10 column (as I named it by alias) contains no value.
I am using mysql.

maybe this has to do somehting with the alias?

i assume you're using MySQL because of the Limit clause, but what error are
you receiving?

Hi there,

I would like to find out the top 10 of some ratings. There are 2 columns.
One for the rating and one for the amount of ratings.
To find out the top 10 I would have to divide those 2 values and sort it.

Somehow this does not work. I do not have a clue why. Maybe someone of you
guys do see the error:

Mysql:

SELECT
  ID,
  rating_total / ratings_amount AS top10
FROM rating
ORDER BY top10 desc
LIMIT 10

Thanx for any help,

Andy
