Hi All,
I've a table whose schema and sample data are as follows:

EmpCode               ManagerCode
=========             =============
1                        1
2                        1
3                        2
4                        2
5                        3
6                        2
7                        3
8                        4

The name of the table is EMP

Now my task is to create a query which will give a hierarchy of manager against a particular EmpCode. Say for example for EmpCode 7 the output will be


I've tried with self join but its giving only the immediate manager not the total hierarchy. It will be of great help if provided with any clue to achieve this result

When answering a question please:
  1. Read the question carefully.
  2. Understand that English isn't everyone's first language so be lenient of bad spelling and grammar.
  3. If a question is poorly phrased then either ask for clarification, ignore it, or edit the question and fix the problem. Insults are not welcome.
  4. Don't tell someone to read the manual. Chances are they have and don't get it. Provide an answer or move on to the next question.
