List of all employees where I'm the manager of their department or some department above

Problem:
I want a list of all employees where I'm the manager of their department or some department above (in MS SQL)
I can be a manager of one of more departments

Table 1: EMPLOYEES: columns employeecode, name, departmentcode
Table 2: MANAGERS:  columns employeecode, departmentcode (employeecode is manager of departmentcode)
Table 3: DEPARTMENTS: columns departmentcode, treecode
      treecode is a parent-child structure for each department, like
                 *TOP*parent*parent*parent*thisDepartment
      example: department 0310 has treecode *TOP*B05*B0003*0310*
      (0310's parent is B0003, B0003's parent is B05 and so on)

Example: if I am the manager of departments B05 and C01, I want all employees in any department having treecode LIKE '%*B05*%' or '%*C01*%' (MS SQL)

Please try the following:
Select * 
  From Employees
Where DepartmentCode in
    (Select d2.DepartmentCode From Managers m
        join Departments d1 on d1.DepartmentCode = m.DepartmentCode
        join Departments d2 on d2.TreeCode Like d1.TreeCode + '%'
        where m.EmployeeCode = <MyEmployeeCode>)

Open in new window


I hope this helps.

Just a small change:
   join Departments d2 on d2.TreeCode Like '%*' + d1.TreeCode + '*%'
