Hi there:

I have an Employees table with the fields called EmployeeName and YearsOfService. I have another table called Bonus that contains the fields: MinimumYears and BonusAmt. I want to create a view that displays the EmployeeName, YearsOfService and BonusAmt (one record per employee).

The Bonus table has the values:
MinimumYears | Bonus
0 | 0
2 | 1000
4 | 2800
6 | 4000

Two records in the Employees table may read:
EmployeeName | YearsOfService
Barry Blue | 2.65
Wayne Brown | 4.80
Greg White |1.94

The final view should read:
EmployeeName | YearsOfService | BonusAmt
Barry Blue | 2.65 | 1000
Wayne Brown | 4.80 | 2800
Greg White |1.94 | 0

So, what would be the SQL statement to get the required results?
