Hi

I am trying to join two tables MARA_MBEW (2 million records) and MARC (70000 records) using the SQL code below, but the result seems so large that SQL Server Management Studio keeps on running without a result. I have created to joins. What is wrong with my SQL syntax?

I get the following errors":
Msg 1105, Level 17, State 2, Line 1
Could not allocate space for object 'dbo.SORT temporary run storage:  143338021322752' in database 'tempdb' because the 'PRIMARY' filegroup is full. Create disk space by deleting unneeded files, dropping objects in the filegroup, adding additional files to the filegroup, or setting autogrowth on for existing files in the filegroup.
Msg 9002, Level 17, State 4, Line 1
The transaction log for database 'tempdb' is full. To find out why space in the log cannot be reused, see the log_reuse_wait_desc column in sys.databases


SELECT b.[Article] As [MARC | Article], b.[Site] As [MARC | Site], a.[Article description] As [MARA_MBEW | Article description], a.[BUn] As [MARA_MBEW | BUn], a.[MS] As [MARA_MBEW | MS], a.[Total Stock] As [MARA_MBEW | Total Stock], b.[MS] As [MARC | MS], b.[MRPC] As [MARC | MRPC], b.[Typ] As [MARC | Typ] FROM [MARA_MBEW] a INNER JOIN [MARC] b ON (a.[Article] = b.[Article]),[MARA_MBEW] c INNER JOIN [MARC] d ON (c.[ValA] = d.[Site])
