What are the different types of joins?
1) INNER JOIN:
The Inner join shows matches only when they exist in both the tables.For example, in the SQL below there are two tables Customers and Orders and the inner join in made on the Customers Customerid and Orders Customerid.Therefore this SQL will only give you the result with customers who have orders.If the customer does not have order it will not display any record.
SELECT Customers.*, Orders.* FROM Customers INNER JOIN Orders ON
2) LEFT OUTER JOIN:
The Left join will display all the records in left table of the SQL statement.In SQL below the customers with or without orders will be displayed. The Order data for customers without orders appears as NULL values. For example, you want to determine the amount ordered by every customer and you need to see who has not ordered anything as well. You can also see the LEFT OUTER JOIN as a mirror image of the RIGHT OUTER JOIN (Is covered in the next part) if you switch the side of each table.
SELECT Customers.*, Orders.* FROM Customers LEFT OUTER JOIN Orders ON
3) RIGHT OUTER JOIN :
The Right join will display all records in the right table of the SQL statement. In the below SQL all orders with or without matching customer records will be displayed. The Customer data for orders without customers appears as NULL values. For example, you want to determine if there is any order in the data with undefined CustomerID values (say, after a conversion Or something like it). You can also see the RIGHT OUTER JOIN as a mirror image of the LEFT OUTER JOIN if you switch the side of every table.
SELECT Customers.*, Orders.* FROM Customers RIGHT OUTER JOIN Orders ON Customers.CustomerID =Orders.CustomerID
