I have a query like below

query 1

select name from table1 where id=....

will return a list of name


query 2

select * from table2 where table2.id like '%query1%'

this doesn't work. How to do query 2 to return the records that match any query 1 returned???

FROM Query2
WHERE id IN (SELECT id FROM Query1)

But a quicker way (generally) would be:

SELECT Query2.name
FROM Query2
INNER JOIN (SELECT id FROM Query1) as Temp
ON Query2.ID = Temp.ID

this is not exact what I want. Let me clear out here


There is no relationship between query 1 and query 2. But in query 2, the field called "name" contains word from the name returned from query 1.

I want to return any records whose name field contain the word from query 1

query 1

select name from table1 where id=....

will return a list of name


query 2

select * from table2 where table2.name like '%query1%

How about:

SELECT *
FROM Table2, Query1
WHERE Table2.[Name] Like '%' & query1.FieldName & '%'

query1.FieldName is varchar(64) data type

Table2.[Name] is text data type

My experience with this aspect of SQL Server is limited. You might be able to use either the CAST( ) or CONVERT( ) SQL functions, something like:

SELECT *
FROM Table2, Query1
WHERE Cast(Table2.[Name] as varchar(64)) Like '%' + query1.FieldName + '%'

the same error?

Can I convert this as procedure? I mean, have a while loop then, return each record matched. If so, how?

Please check this:
SELECT distinct T2.* FROM table1 T1 CROSS JOIN table2 T2
WHERE T2.name LIKE ('%'+T1.name+'%')

Open in new window


Also you can add the condition on id
SELECT distinct T2.* FROM table1 T1 CROSS JOIN table2 T2
WHERE T2.name LIKE ('%'+T1.name+'%')
and t1.id=..

Open in new window

(select 1 from table1 t1

Might need AS keyword for table aliases -
select * from table2 AS t2
where exists
(select 1 from table1 AS t1
 where charindex(t1.name,t2.name) > 0);
