Hello Experts,
I am in the process of analyzing the customer base against the salary amounts.  I have the following  
Table one
Cust ID      Salary
4556      500
4321      600
4566      100
123      999
1234      456

Table two
Cust ID      Salary
4556      399
54545      999
4566      5000
123456      500
4321      444


I need to have one table that has all the data.  Please note that not all customers in table 1 are in table two and not all customers in table 2 are in table 1.
Therefore I am having a problem joining these two tables.
I would like to have the following
Cust ID      Salary1      Salary2

Where if for example customer 4321 salary in table1 is 600 but  he is not in table 2 so value of zero should be assigned in the new table im trying to create
Thanks

Create Query1 and save it.

Select custid from table1
Union
Select Custid from table2

Create query2:

Select query1.*, table1.salary as salary1, table2.salary as salary2
from (query1 left join table1 on query1.custid = table1.custid)
left join table2 on query1.custid = table2.custid
