Add Join to Return All Dates

I have the query in the below snippet that works fine.  However, instead of returning only dates that contain values - as it does now, I, instead, need it to return ALL dates, and if there is no data for a given date, then it can just return every other column as null.

So, in an effort to accomplish this, I built a table named 'TSIDateLookup' with a column named 'DateFull' that contains ALL dates.

I was thinking that I just needed to LEFT JOIN this new table to the below query, but apparently I do not know how to accomplish that.  The join that needs to be made is between my new table/column dbo.TSIDateLookup.DateFull , and that would be equal to the following field in the existing query: dbo.p21_view_oe_hdr.order_date .  So, dbo.TSIDateLookup.DateFull  = dbo.p21_view_oe_hdr.order_date is what needs to somehow be added.

In case it matters, the new table is just that - a table.  Everything else being selected in the existing query is being pulled from a view.

Thanks for your help.

I am not sure if i understand correctly but you are using inner joins between your views so getting all records cant be done becouse with some of those joins you are probably removing records that u need to get.

First what u can try is adding appropriate left joins instead of inner joins for table that actually remove your records from resultset.

It is hard for me to know wich view contains what data and where inner join or left join should be used.

I'll try to help clarify that, and throw another possible solution in.

If you have

a inner join b outer join c

then a and b must exist but c is optional

if you have

a outer join b inner join c

then a, b and c must exist because c is inner joined.

Now you can make all of your inners outer, but that may not work.  but you can wrap the existing query into a derived table and left outer join to it.

like this:


select t.fulldate, a.*
from tsiDatelookup t
left outer join
