I have two tables TableA and Table B (one field each) with data

[TableA]
name1,
name2,
name3

and
[Table B]
bname1,
bname2,
bname3

I want to build the query to return the following:

name1, bname1
name1, bname2
name1, bname3
name2, bname1
name2, bname2
name2, bname3
name3, bname1
name3, bname2
name3, bname3

How can I do it in SQL Server 2000?
Thanks

the name1,name2, bname1,bname2 etc are not fields in the table, they are data!

You can use CROSS JOIN

SELECT a.Field1 , b.Field1
FROM TableA a CROSS JOIN TableB B

Hi, you have only one field in each table (here I'm calling them field)
If you do not put any join conditions in it will do what is called a cartesian join and will give you all combinations of rows from the two tables

select
   a.field, b.field
from
   tableA as a, tableB as B

each table has more than 1 field, but I only need one field out of them....

the same principle should apply, this is row based combinations - so only show the desired fields in the query - CROSS JOIN is probably better

sorry, it works both ways. I am stupid, because in one table I had no data, that's why I was getting no results... The crossjoin query is given from Create New View....

Thanks for the time
