Hi all,

I know there are a few solutions for this out there but non of them suit me. This is my problem.

Att1, Att2, Price per unit
1, 1, $0.2
1, 1, $0.3
1, 1, $0.3
1, 1, $0.4
1, 1, $0.5
1, 2, $0.3
1, 2, $0.3
1, 2, $0.3
1, 2, $0.4

This is the table I have and the Att1 and Att2 is to distinguish the product difference. From example above, Att1 = 1 and Att1 = 1 is product A and Att1 = 1 and Att2 = 2 is product B.

So, now, how do I find the median price for each product? It doesn't need to be financial median. I have tried a few solutions but they didn't work properly.

DECLARE	@Sample TABLE (Att1 INT, Att2 INT, PPU MONEY)
