Table Join - One to Many Relationship

Table Join - One to Many Relationship

Table Join - One to Many Relationship

I am trying to join two tables that have a 1 to many relationship. Is this an outer join? I am getting duplicate records.


where a.TableOne = b.TableMany (+)

RE: Table Join - One to Many Relationship

first of all, you posted in the ANSI SQL forum, and that [bleeping] plus sign is not ANSI SQL, it's proprietary syntax that works only on Oracle, so perhaps you'd be better off pursuing your questions in one of the Oracle forums

also, whether you want an inner join or an outer join is dictated by which rows you want returned (matched and/or unmatched), not by the tables themselves
