SQL 2000 Intersect Equivalent

Posted on 2006-10-30
Last Modified: 2008-01-09
I am looking for a way to get an intersection of 2 tables in a SQL Server 2000 database.  I know 2005 offers this functionality built in, but 2000 lacks this.  I'm guessing there is still a way to accomplish this with what 2000 does offer, probably with some tricky subqueries, but I haven't been able to figure it out yet.

Basically I have 2 tables that have a CaseNumber field and I want to get a recordset that lists the CaseNumbers that appear in both table1 and table2.  Anyone have some SQL code lying around that will accomplish this?  Thanks in advance.

Hi srafi78,

try this

select distinct table1.casenumber
from table1 inner join table 2 on table1.casenumber = table2.casenumber
