Last Modified: 2013-06-18
I know in SQL its something like this but I just read something and Im curious if I can do this in Oracle? Its a Inner Join on the same table but with different keys

from omni_common_lookup a
inner join omni_common_lookup b on A.LOOKUP_CODE = B.LOOKUP_SUB_TYPE_CODE
where a.lookup_key LIKE 'ALERT_ITEMS_%' and b.lookup_key= 'ALERT_EMP_PEOPLE';

Can this be done in Oracle?
