combining two resultsets into one

I am trying to combine the result of two queries into one result set, and return that back to my web page.

Table a
fields (id, invtid, price, theme)

table b
id, invtid, theme)

I want to pull back all of the results from a where the theme is 'XXX"

and then incorporate the results of table b into the resultset where the contents of B equal 'XXX' for theme.

And I have tried a number of ways of trying to do this as you can see from the code sample down below, right now I am getting a syntax error right after I try the left outer join on B, but even if I get this working I don't think it will work the way I want it to work.

So if anyone has any ideas on how to do this I would appreciate your help. Thanks.

You have no beginning select or from statements.  Your derived table has a beginning { instead of ( and has no ending ).

I'll give you a general fixup here, but you'll need to ensure your table names are correct.

select {What} -- where {WHAT} represents the fields you want to select
from Where a
join Where2 b
on a.Field=b.Field -- where field
join (select a.id,b.col1,sum(b.something) sumsomething from Tablea a join tableb b on a.id=b.id group by a.id,b.col1) c
-- ^^ this is a derived table of a.id and b.col1 that is now referred to as c
on a.id=c.id

where a.SomeField = 'SomeValue'
