I am using MS SQL Server 2005 and would like to join/combine ALL the rows in Table A to be in the output query along with all rows from Table B joined with data from Table A.

                   Table A
Addr ID            Address Data
101            101 Main
103            103 Main
104            104 Main
105            105 Main

               Table B
Apt ID            Addr ID            Apt Data
xxA             103            apt A
xxB            103            apt B
xxC            103            apt C

              Desired Query Output
101 Main
103 Main                         <-----  (how do I get this row?)
103 Main       apt A
103 Main       apt B
103 Main       apt C
104 Main
105 Main

select [Address Data] from tableA
left join tableB on tableA.[Addr ID]=tableB.[Addr ID]

Are you wanting all the records from tableA and all the records from tableA with data from table B?

what your desired output seems to suggest is
select [Address Data] , [Apt Data]
 from tableA
left join tableB on tableA.[Addr ID]=tableB.[Addr ID]
select [Address Data] , ""  as [Apt Data]
 from tableA
order by [Address Data]
