If there are more records in table2 or table3 for a record in table1, INNER JOIN will return all the records

For eg:-
If table1 have 1 record.
table2 have related 5 records
then INNER JOIN will return 5 records

Hope you are clear

because the id field is probably unique in each database or you don't have correct ON clause.


	employes e
	inner join function f
		on e.employe_id = f.employe_id 
	e.employe_id = 1

Open in new window

you will have two row for same employe if the employe got two different function in the compagnie.
