Tutorial by Topics: join



JOIN is a method of combining (joining) information from two tables. The result is a stitched set of columns from both tables, defined by the join type (INNER/OUTER/CROSS and LEFT/RIGHT/FULL, explained below) and join criteria (how rows from both tables relate).

A table may be joined to itself or to any other table. If information from more than two tables needs to be accessed, multiple joins can be specified in a FROM clause.

In Structured Query Language (SQL), a JOIN is a method of linking two data tables in a single query, allowing the database to return a set that contains data from both tables at once, or using data from one table to be used as a Filter on the second table. There are several types of JOINs defined within the ANSI SQL standard.

A join combines two tables containing related columns. The term covers a wide range of operations, essentially everything except appending the two tables. "Merge" is a synonym. Type ?`[.data.table` for the official docs.
Contrary to widespread misunderstanding (including on SO), Oracle allows updates through joins. However, there are some (pretty logical) requirements. We illustrate what doesn't work and what does through a simple example. Another way to achieve the same is the MERGE statement.

These where some of the hardest things (and least talked about) to do with the PHP API advanced search (where you specify what fields).

Im in the process of migrating to rest_suite github library that uses RESTLET, and get around the PHP API user concurrency limit of 1.

But before i delete my old code im posting it here. Example specs for these field can be found here: http://www.netsuite.com/help/helpcenter/en_US/srbrowser/Browser2016_1/schema/search/transactionsearchrow.html?mode=package

Each database is a collection of different tables and each table contains different data in an organized way. While working with data, most of the times information we need is scattered in more than one table. We need joins/merge to get the desired output.

In SAS we use joins while working with Proc SQL and use merge while working with Data step. We will now talk only about joins inside Proc SQL.
