Originally posted on: You go through the Azure price calculator and figure out everything you think are going to need for your Azure VM and how much each resource will cost you on a monthly basis.  You then pick a template from the marketplace and implement it assuming you know what services are being stood up.  Do you really know? What you may not realize is that if you didn’t go through the pricing calculator thuroughly you may be in for some surprises on your bill.  Not only do you get charged for the hardware

do multiple payments in a month 

This can be represented using a table with the below structure

declare @t table
Customer varchar(10),
Price decimal(15,2),
PaidDate date

insert @t

The above data represents the various payments made by customers along with the date of payment information
The requirement is to get the top 3 customers from this based on the total payments done. In addition we also need to get the total payment done by all the other customers. This is for listing the details in a report 
Now lets see how the above requirement can be achieved by using the OFFSET.. FETCH syntax which is...(Read whole news on source site)
