Is this homework? What have you tried so far?

Here's a hint: use GROUP BY and COUNT(*) in a CTE or subquery to find out how many of each product there are, and then use MAX to find out which one has the most.

I don't know... being an intern means that you're supposed to be learning some things from the people you're working for. You should have a mentor that's been assigned to you. I'd ask the mentor to show you. Nothing better than face-to-face training/learning.

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
     Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
Although they tell us that they want it real bad, our primary goal is to ensure that we dont actually give it to them that way.
Although change is inevitable, change for the better is usually not.
Just because you can do something in PowerShell, doesnt mean you should. Wink
