Unable to Select Full Outer Join Between Databases
Posted on 2006-11-27
I have a report based upon four views from one database and one view from another database (housed on the same server). I need a full outer join between one view and each of the other 4 views. That isn't a problem with the four views within the same database, but I can't get a full outer join between the main view and the one view that is in another database. I can get the left outer join, but not a full outer join. If I could get the full outer join to work, I think the report would run faster.
View 1 - Full Outer Join View 2 (same database)
View 1 - Full Outer Join View 3 (same database)
View 1 - Full Outer Join View 4 (same database)
View 1 - Left Outer Join View 5 (different database)
I've checked the field types and they match (all varchar) - however, some of the fields are longer in view 5.
Any ideas why this isn't working?
Thanks in advance.
