HI,

I have 3 tables with the following fields
1) ProcessorProduct
    fields:    ProductID  INT IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL,  
                 OnCatalogPromotion BIT NOT NULL,
                 DealReasonType INT,  
                 RebateID INT ....
2) DealReason
    fields:    DealReasonType INT IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL,
                  Name VARCHAR 50) NOT NULL,
                  Description VARCHAR 200 ...
3) Rebate
      fileds:   RebateID INT IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL,
                   RebateName VARCHAR(50) NOT NULL,
                   RebateValue  MONEY NOT NULL  .....

ProductTable has a many-to-many relation with DealReason
ProductTable has a one-to-many relation with Rebate table

I need to find all the records in ProductTable that are true for OnCatalogPromotion field
Also, find the DealReason record that goes with the current ProductTable record and
Find the Rebate record that goes with the current ProductTable
I have the following

SELECT ProcessorProduct.ProductID,
                ProcessorProduct.Name,
                DealReason.Name,
FROM ProcessorProduct INNER JOIN ProductDealReason
    ON ProcessorProduct.ProductID = ProductDealReason.ProductID  
 INNER JOIN DealReason
    ON ProductDealReason.DealReasonType = DealReason.DealReasonType
WHERE ProcessorProduct.OnCatalogPromotion = 1

The above query is find but now I need to find the fields Rebate.Name and Rebate.RebateValue
for the ProcessorProduct table records. I don't know if this should be done in another query or wether it should be embeded into the above query. I try to do the following but does not work because the subqueries cannot be done on multiple fields

SELECT ProcessorProduct.ProductID,
                ProcessorProduct.Name,
                DealReason.Name,
               (SELECT Rebate.RebateName, Rebate.RebateValue
                 FROM Rebate
                 WHERE Rebate.RebateID = ProcessorProduct.RebateID)
FROM ProcessorProduct INNER JOIN ProductDealReason
    ON ProcessorProduct.ProductID = ProductDealReason.ProductID  
 INNER JOIN DealReason
    ON ProductDealReason.DealReasonType = DealReason.DealReasonType
WHERE ProcessorProduct.OnCatalogPromotion = 1

In this query I am trying to get the Name and RebateValue fields from Rebate table. Please help, I am getting the following error in SQL Server

Only one expression can be speciefied in the select list when the query is not introduced with EXISTS

SELECT ProcessorProduct.ProductID, 
                ProcessorProduct.Name,
                DealReason.Name,
               (SELECT Rebate.RebateName, Rebate.RebateValue 
                 FROM Rebate
                 WHERE Rebate.RebateID == ProcessorProduct.RebateID)
FROM ProcessorProduct INNER JOIN ProductDealReason
    ON ProcessorProduct.ProductID = ProductDealReason.ProductID  
 INNER JOIN DealReason 
    ON ProductDealReason.DealReasonType = DealReason.DealReasonType
WHERE ProcessorProduct.OnCatalogPromotion = 1

You need to join the Rebate table. I've used LEFT JOIN to make sure that rows are retrieved from the other tables even when there are no matching rows in Rebate

SELECT ProcessorProduct.ProductID,
                ProcessorProduct.Name,
                DealReason.Name,
               Rebate.RebateName, Rebate.RebateValue
FROM ProcessorProduct INNER JOIN ProductDealReason
    ON ProcessorProduct.ProductID = ProductDealReason.ProductID  
 INNER JOIN DealReason
    ON ProductDealReason.DealReasonType = DealReason.DealReasonType
 LEFT JOIN  Rebate
    ON Rebate.RebateID = ProcessorProduct.RebateID
 
WHERE ProcessorProduct.OnCatalogPromotion = 1
