Outer Join Showing Too Many Records

I am working with a query that joins two tables with an outer join

Table 1 has 9174 records.  When I join Table 1 to Table 2 with an outer join (inlude ALL records from table 1 and only those records from table 2 where the joined fields are equal)

For some reason when I run the query i get 9187 records back. (I should only be getting 9174 records back based on how I setup the query)


Any thoughts?

Thanks

how many do you get back with an inner join, and how many records are there in table 2?
