Hi, Is there any command as the "greatest" in MySQL that returns the maximum value in multiple columns?

Select * from ANIMALS

Place Amount1 Amount2 Amount3 Amount4
1 1 5 0 1
2 1 3 8 2
3 1 4 2 4

My expected return:

Place Max
1 5
2 8
3 4

Please take a look at the GREATER function. It does what you want for two inputs only, so you may need to combine several of those - something like GREATER(GREATER(a,b),GREATER(c,d)).
