We'll discuss smart way to use sql inner join. And get the most out of rdbms by understanding this.
In a relational database that has been normalized, it's very rare you can get all information from just one table, you must put together data from several different tables. So using Sql join is inevitable. It lets you retrieve data from more than one table in a single Select statement.
The Sql Inner Join is best explained using pictures.
Inner join, in set theory, is known as the intersection,i.e. elements which belong to both A and B.
You need to specify the connecting column or join column, and it has to be the same data type.
There are two ways to write Sql Inner Join
OR (check if your system permits the following syntax)
List of columns to select from either of the tables. All column references must be unambiguous. You can also use an expression.
left_table_name / right_table_name
The two tables to be joined together
as A / as B
Aliases. It is useful to use alias, mainly to shorten the table reference. It makes the Sql more readable.
An explicit method of inner join. Join column between Tbl_L and Tbl_R.
Join column between Tbl_L and Tbl_R.
An implicit method of inner join. ID is the join column between Tbl_L and Tbl_R. Noticed how much simpler this comparison is because of using alias.
To illustrate let's use PUBS database. This is some entries of Titles table:
|BU1032||The Busy Executive's Database Guide||business||1389|
|BU1111||Cooking with Computers: Surreptitious Balance Sheets||business||1389|
|BU2075||You Can Combat Computer Stress!||business||736|
|BU7832||Straight Talk About Computers||business||1389|
|MC2222||Silicon Valley Gastronomic Treats||mod_cook||877|
In the Titles table, the publisher's information is just a number. The number is the ID of the publishers which is stored in Publishers table. The task is simply to show the publisher's name for each book's title.
This is some entries from Publishers table.
|736||New Moon Books||Boston||MA||USA|
|877||Binnet & Hardley||Washington||DC||USA|
|1622||Five Lakes Publishing||Chicago||IL||USA|
Some of rows from the result:
|BU1032||The Busy Executive's Database Guide||business||Algodata Infosystems|
|BU1111||Cooking with Computers: Surreptitious Balance Sheets||business||Algodata Infosystems|
|BU2075||You Can Combat Computer Stress!||business||New Moon Books|
|BU7832||Straight Talk About Computers||business||Algodata Infosystems|
|MC2222||Silicon Valley Gastronomic Treats||mod_cook||Binnet & Hardley|

Sql Create Table
This Sql Create Table will be used very often throughout the tutorial. It is used to create a table, in our case, mainly to create sample tables.
Sql Alter Table
Used less often, but it is very handy to know this command. With this you can basically edit a table structure.

Used to delete a table, not just the content. This command is also used very often during the tutorial. So, you need to master this too.
To add rows to a table, you use Sql Insert command. There are two methods, one is with the VALUES keyword and second is with a SELECT statement.

Eliminating duplicate values in the output.
Conditionally selecting rows from table.
Pattern searching for conditions in Where or Having clause
Added to conditions to show results between two values.
It enables us to specify multiple values, either as a list or a subquery.
Sql And Or
