I know this is stupid question to ask but just giving a try if any one can help me.


I have two tables A & B

Table A Columns
-------------------

ID           AMOUNT
1               100
1               200
1               300
1               400
1               500

Table B columns
--------------------

ID              NO
1               ABC
1               DEF
1               GHI
1               JKL
1               MNO


When I join both the tables I get 5*5 = 25 rows

Is there any way I can get 5 records when I join both the tables with ID as Join ?

Add a where clause?

Select t1.id, amount, no
From tableA t1, tableB t2
Where t1.id=t2.I'd;

OH, I see it now.

There really aren't duplicates.

How do you relate what amount goes with what NO?

Does 100 go with ABC or MNO?

You can create an arbitrary join column but there you need to decide on what amount goes with what NO.

The code below produces:


        ID     AMOUNT N
---------- ---------- -
         1        100 a
         1        200 b
         1        300 c
         1        400 d
         1        500 e
drop table tab1 purge;
create table tab1(id number, amount number);

drop table tab2 purge;
create table tab2(id number, no char(1));

insert into tab1 values(1,100);
insert into tab1 values(1,200);
insert into tab1 values(1,300);
insert into tab1 values(1,400);
insert into tab1 values(1,500);

insert into tab2 values(1,'a');
insert into tab2 values(1,'b');
insert into tab2 values(1,'c');
insert into tab2 values(1,'d');
insert into tab2 values(1,'e');
commit;

select t1.id, t1.amount, t2.no
from
(select id, amount, row_number() over(order by amount) t1_rownum from tab1) t1,
(select id, no, row_number() over(order by no) t2_rownum from tab2) t2
where t1.id=t2.id and t1.t1_rownum = t2.t2_rownum;

Humm,

Yup ! Looks similar.

What I want to point out here is that VenkatBunny probably didn't search for the problem before posting a question...

Cheers,
P
