Problem with sql statement

I have the following query.

SELECT     a.ID, a.FullID, a.PropertyID, a.BldgID, a.UnitID, a.ResiID, RTRIM(b.ResiFirstName) + SPACE(1) + RTRIM(b.ResiLastName) AS name, c.TransAmt, d.DueDate
FROM         Collection_Master AS a LEFT OUTER JOIN
                      TAG_eSite.dbo.Lease AS b ON a.PropertyID = b.PropertyId AND a.BldgID = b.BldgId AND a.UnitID = b.UnitId AND a.ResiID = b.ResiId INNER JOIN
                      TAG_eSite.dbo.TransactionHeader AS c ON b.PropertyId = c.PropertyId AND b.BldgId = c.BldgId AND b.UnitId = c.UnitId AND b.ResiId = c.ResiId RIGHT OUTER JOIN
                      TAG_eSite.dbo.TransactionDetail AS d ON c.TransHeaderNo = d.TransHeaderNo
WHERE     (a.Status LIKE '%pay plan%') AND (d.IncCode = 'COLL') AND (d.JnlType = 'C')
ORDER BY a.FullID, d.DueDate DESC


my problem is that if a person doesn't have a transaction in TransactionHeader than they don't show up on the report.

So I need the list to show all persons with a.Status LIKE '%pay plan%' but I still need them to show up even if there is no transactions for them.

Change the INNER JOIN above to a LEFT JOIN, which will include all rows to the left, and only the TransactionHeader values to the right if they exist, and if not return NULL.

That was going to be my initial suggestion. But methinks they still won't show up. If they are not in TransactionHeader, then presumably they are not in TransactionDetail, and you have a WHERE requirement on that table as well.

... does call into question why there's a RIGHT JOIN on TransactionDetail ...

Where are you trying to write the SQL?
Is it in Crystal or the database?
If it is in Crystal then as soon as you filter based on the joined table, the joins are treated as inner.

If this is in the database try putting the filter on D into the join logic also change the join to left outer

LEFT  OUTER JOIN TAG_eSite.dbo.TransactionDetail AS d ON c.TransHeaderNo = d.TransHeaderNo
AND  (d.IncCode = 'COLL') AND (d.JnlType = 'C')

I am actually just look for the last record in the transaction detail table created for that person and getting the duedate from it.  But it does seem that no matter right or left joins, I can not get it to display someone in the collection_master table that does not have a transaction in the transactionheader table to show up.

SELECT     a.ID, a.FullID, a.PropertyID, a.BldgID, a.UnitID, a.ResiID, RTRIM(b.ResiFirstName) + SPACE(1) + RTRIM(b.ResiLastName) AS name, c.TransAmt, d.DueDate, 
                      c.TransType, c.TransHeaderNo
FROM         Collection_Master AS a INNER JOIN
                      TAG_eSite.dbo.Lease AS b ON a.PropertyID = b.PropertyId AND a.BldgID = b.BldgId AND a.UnitID = b.UnitId AND a.ResiID = b.ResiId INNER JOIN
                      TAG_eSite.dbo.TransactionHeader AS c ON b.PropertyId = c.PropertyId AND b.BldgId = c.BldgId AND b.UnitId = c.UnitId AND b.ResiId = c.ResiId RIGHT OUTER JOIN
                      TAG_eSite.dbo.TransactionDetail AS d ON c.TransHeaderNo = d.TransHeaderNo
WHERE     (a.Status LIKE '%pay plan%') AND (d.IncCode = 'COLL') AND (d.JnlType = 'C')
ORDER BY a.FullID, d.DueDate DESC

working on creating sql procedure to be used in crystal, so I can filter the records once I have them.  But I only want inccode = 'coll' in transdetail and and I need to list everyone on the collection_Master with "Pay Plan"  in the status.

This is what I have now  
SELECT     a.ID, a.FullID, a.PropertyID, a.BldgID, a.UnitID, a.ResiID, RTRIM(b.ResiFirstName) + SPACE(1) + RTRIM(b.ResiLastName) AS name, c.TransAmt, d.DueDate
 FROM         Collection_Master AS a LEFT OUTER JOIN
                       TAG_eSite.dbo.Lease AS b ON a.PropertyID = b.PropertyId AND a.BldgID = b.BldgId AND a.UnitID = b.UnitId AND a.ResiID = b.ResiId INNER JOIN
                       TAG_eSite.dbo.TransactionHeader AS c ON b.PropertyId = c.PropertyId AND b.BldgId = c.BldgId AND b.UnitId = c.UnitId AND b.ResiId = c.ResiId LEFT  OUTER JOIN 
                       TAG_eSite.dbo.TransactionDetail AS d ON c.TransHeaderNo = d.TransHeaderNo AND  (d.IncCode = 'COLL') AND (d.JnlType = 'C')

 WHERE     (a.Status LIKE '%pay plan%') AND (d.IncCode = 'COLL') AND (d.JnlType = 'C')
 ORDER BY a.FullID, d.DueDate DESC

Open in new window

and its still missing people without transactions.  If I remove the where clause references to d then I get 6400 records rather than 240

thanks
