How can I display the data side by side as image below:
Thanks in advance for any help given.
display data side by side
/****** Visually compare data from tables in different databases  ******/
/* Database 1 */
SELECT TOP 3000 O.Id,O.ProductId,O.Price,O.OldPrice,O.OldPriceMP, O.Description, C.Id, C.Name
FROM CorpWear265_Restore_Test.dbo.ProductVariant O INNER JOIN CorpWear265_Restore_Test.dbo.Product C 
ON O.id = c.id 
WHERE O.Price > '0.0000'
ORDER BY O.Id ASC

/* Visually Compare code here */

/* Database 2 */
SELECT TOP 3000 O.Id,O.ProductId,O.Price,O.OldPrice,O.OldPriceMP, O.Description, C.Id, C.Name

you can do this:
select d1.*
, d2.*
from (
SELECT TOP 3000 O.Id,O.ProductId,O.Price,O.OldPrice,O.OldPriceMP, O.Description, C.Id, C.Name
, ROW_NUMBER() OVER ( ORDER BY  O.Id) RN
FROM CorpWear265_Restore_Test.dbo.ProductVariant O INNER JOIN CorpWear265_Restore_Test.dbo.Product C 
ON O.id = c.id 
WHERE O.Price > '0.0000'
ORDER BY O.Id ASC

) D1 FULL OUTER JOIN (

SELECT TOP 3000 O.Id,O.ProductId,O.Price,O.OldPrice,O.OldPriceMP, O.Description, C.Id, C.Name
, ROW_NUMBER() OVER ( ORDER BY  O.Id) RN
FROM CorpWear265_Restore_TestAlt.dbo.ProductVariant O INNER JOIN CorpWear265_Restore_TestAlt.dbo.Product C 
ON O.id = c.id 
WHERE O.Price > '0.0000'
ORDER BY O.Id ASC
) d2
              
ON d1.RN = d2.RN

Exactly Hengel.

Just have to change the D1 to d1 in the FROM clause.

The column 'Id' was specified multiple times for 'd1'.
Msg 8156, Level 16, State 1, Line 21
The column 'Id' was specified multiple times for 'd2'.
Thanks in advance for the help.

If the same ID must exists in same databases and tables then you can have it simplified like this:
SELECT TOP 3000 O.Id,O.ProductId,O.Price,O.OldPrice,O.OldPriceMP, O.Description, C.Id, C.Name,
				O2.Id,O2.ProductId,O2.Price,O2.OldPrice,O2.OldPriceMP, O2.Description, C2.Id, C2.Name
FROM CorpWear265_Restore_Test.dbo.ProductVariant O 
	INNER JOIN CorpWear265_Restore_Test.dbo.Product C ON O.id = c.id 
	INNER JOIN CorpWear265_Restore_TestAlt.dbO2.ProductVariant O2 
		INNER JOIN CorpWear265_Restore_TestAlt.dbO2.Product C2 ON O2.id = C2.id 
	ON O.id = O2.id 
WHERE O.Price > '0.0000' AND O2.Price > '0.0000'
ORDER BY O.Id ASC

Hi, Below is copy of working code:
SELECT TOP 3000 O.Id,O.ProductId,O.Price,O.OldPrice,O.OldPriceMP, O.Description, C.Id, C.Name,
				O2.Id,O2.ProductId,O2.Price,O2.OldPrice,O2.OldPriceMP, O2.Description, C2.Id, C2.Name
FROM CorpWear265_Restore_Test.dbo.ProductVariant O 
	INNER JOIN CorpWear265_Restore_Test.dbo.Product C ON O.id = c.id 
	INNER JOIN CorpWear265_Restore_TestAlt.dbo.ProductVariant O2 
	INNER JOIN CorpWear265_Restore_TestAlt.dbo.Product C2 ON O2.id = C2.id 
	ON O.id = O2.id 
WHERE O.Price > '0.0000' AND O2.Price > '0.0000'
ORDER BY O.Id ASC

Open in new window

Is it possible to create a last column indicating a difference
between Price in database 1 & Price in database 2?
It doesn't have to be a value, just '*' will suffice.
Do I need to open new question & close this one awarding the points?

Just add the operation as last column:
SELECT TOP 3000 O.Id,O.ProductId,O.Price,O.OldPrice,O.OldPriceMP, O.Description, C.Id, C.Name,
				O2.Id,O2.ProductId,O2.Price,O2.OldPrice,O2.OldPriceMP, O2.Description, C2.Id, C2.Name, (O.Price-O2.Price) [Price difference]
FROM CorpWear265_Restore_Test.dbo.ProductVariant O 
	INNER JOIN CorpWear265_Restore_Test.dbo.Product C ON O.id = c.id 
	INNER JOIN CorpWear265_Restore_TestAlt.dbo.ProductVariant O2 
	INNER JOIN CorpWear265_Restore_TestAlt.dbo.Product C2 ON O2.id = C2.id 
	ON O.id = O2.id 
WHERE O.Price > '0.0000' AND O2.Price > '0.0000'
ORDER BY O.Id ASC
