SQL> select max(value) from table_name where value NOT IN (select max(value) from table_name);
Or use can use <> operator instead of NOT IN

SQL> select max(value) from table_name where value <> (select max(value) from table_name);
both query are correct

Thanks Atul, but I have one more problem that I have a list where second max value in 3, in this case it will show the one one. But I want do display name and other for those row that have second max value?

Okay so you want to display the name of those who have second max value.

SQL>select name from table_name where value IN (select max(value) from table_name where value <> (select max(value) from table_name));
