by the way can you tell me why I get that BatchNo null even when I don't have any batch no col as null in that table
Farzad AkbarnejadDeveloperCommented:
because you use outter join verb.

Change

LEFT OUTER JOIN
        supplierOrderReceiveDetail

to

INNER JOIN
        supplierOrderReceiveDetail


See
stackoverflow.com/questions/38549/difference-between-inner-and-outer-join
fro more info.
