`SELECT key,value,WIDTH_BUCKET(value,100,500,5) as value_group FROM VALUES (1,99), (2,100), (3,199), (4,200), (5,499), (6,500), (7,501), (8,NULL) AS t(key,value); -- The following result is returned: +-------+--------+-------------+ | key | value | value_group | +-------+--------+-------------+ | 1 | 99 | 0 | | 2 | 100 | 1 | | 3 | 199 | 2 | | 4 | 200 | 2 | | 5 | 499 | 5 | | 6 | 500 | 6 | | 7 | 501 | 6 | | 8 | \N | \N | +-------+--------+-------------+`
