I am having some trouble with nested inner joins

Here is the query that doesn't work properly:

SELECT    
  maintable.*,
  subtable1.*,
  subtable2.*
FROM
  maintable
INNER JOIN
  subtable1 ON maintable.mainid = subtable1.mainID
INNER JOIN
  subtable2 ON maintable.mainid = subtable2.mainID
WHERE
 maintable.id = 15
FOR XML AUTO

The current results are:

<maintable mainid="15">
  <subtable1 subid="91" mainID="15">
    <subtable2 subid="104" mainID="15" />
  </subtable1>
  <subtable1 subid="92" mainID="15">
    <subtable2 subid="162" mainID="15" />
  </subtable1>
</maintable>

My desired results are:

<maintable mainid="15">
  <subtable1 subid="91" mainID="15" />
  <subtable1 subid="92" mainID="15" />
  <subtable2 subid="104" mainID="15" />
  <subtable2 subid="162" mainID="15" />
</maintable>

Try this:

SELECT    
 *
FROM
 maintable
INNER JOIN (
SELECT 1 as sub, * FROM subtable1
UNION ALL
SELECT 2 as sub * FROM subtable2
) as subtable
ON maintable.mainid = subtable.mainID
WHERE
maintable.id = 15
FOR XML AUTO


should give something like this:

<maintable mainid="15">
 <subtable sub="1" subid="91" mainID="15" />
 <subtable sub="1" subid="92" mainID="15" />
 <subtable sub="2" subid="104" mainID="15" />
 <subtable sub="2" subid="162" mainID="15" />
</maintable>

Hope this helps

First of all, since subids are included in the maintable there is no need for the Inner Joins.  But I suspect you are attempting to expand the XML once you get the correct format.

If you can use For XML Explicit instead of For XML Auto, I can post the query.

In the meantime you may also, want to maintain your open questions:

I have achieved this output via XML Explicit ... but am interestedin getting the following output using XML Auto .. if possible

<maintable mainid="15">
<subtable1 subid="91" mainID="15" />
<subtable1 subid="92" mainID="15" />
<subtable2 subid="104" mainID="15" />
<subtable2 subid="162" mainID="15" />
</maintable>
