Hi

I have two tables [Bank] and [Payments]
They both have three matching columns: [DATE], [LINK ID] and [AMOUNT]
I need to pull a query where all three of these columns have the same data
and then a query where this is not the case

What SQL code would I use to achieve these two scenarios?

SELECT * FROM Bank AS A 
WHERE
EXISTS (
SELECT * FROM Payments WHERE Date = A.Date AND [LINK ID] = A.[LINK ID] AND Amount = A.Amount
)

Open in new window


SELECT * FROM Bank AS A 
WHERE
NOT EXISTS (
SELECT * FROM Payments WHERE Date = A.Date AND [LINK ID] = A.[LINK ID] AND Amount = A.Amount
)

Mmmm, I'd normally expect a one (Bank) to many (Payments)

So, for something completely different:

SELECT
      Bank.DATE
    , Bank.[LINK ID]
    , Bank.AMOUNT
    , SUM(Payments.AMOUNT)
FROM Bank
INNER JOIN Payments ON Bank.DATE = Payments.DATE and Bank.[LINK ID] = Payments.[LINK ID]
GROUP BY
      Bank.DATE
    , Bank.[LINK ID]
    , Bank.AMOUNT
;

Open in new window

SELECT
      Bank.DATE
    , Bank.[LINK ID]
    , Bank.AMOUNT
FROM Bank
LEFT JOIN Payments ON Bank.DATE = Payments.DATE and Bank.[LINK ID] = Payments.[LINK ID]
WHERE
      Payments.DATE IS NULL
;

Open in new window
