SQL Query syntax help

Hello all,

I have the following query:

select MV.MVDate, DE.DataEntryID,
            CU.ISOCurrencyCode
from [Customer].[snp].[MarketValueSnap] MV
inner join [Customer].[dbo].[cbiCurrency] CU ON MV.CurrencyID = CU.CurrencyID
inner join [Customer].[dbo].[cbiDataEntry] DE ON MV.DataEntryID = DE.DataEntryID

I then have a table called:  docNote

In this table it has the following fields:
NoteID,
EntityID,
InstanceID,
Note

What I need to do somehow is get the Note from this table where EntityID = 9 (DataEntry) and InstanceID = DE.DataEntryID from my query.   I only want to get the 1st note just in case there is more than one to protect myself.   What is the best way to handle this?

Depends on which note do you want. The first one? The last one?

with myTable as (
select MV.MVDate, DE.DataEntryID,
            CU.ISOCurrencyCode
from [Customer].[snp].[MarketValueSnap] MV
inner join [Customer].[dbo].[cbiCurrency] CU ON MV.CurrencyID = CU.CurrencyID
inner join [Customer].[dbo].[cbiDataEntry] DE ON MV.DataEntryID = DE.DataEntryID
)
Select top(1) Note
From docNote as D
inner join myTable as M on D.InstanceID = M.DataEntryID
where D.EntityID = 9

Just taking what Phillip did, and switching some things around:

with myTable as (
Select D.EntityID, MAX(Note) AS Note
From docNote as D
where D.EntityID = 9
group by D.EntityID
)
select MV.MVDate, DE.DataEntryID,
             CU.ISOCurrencyCode,
myTable.Note
 from [Customer].[snp].[MarketValueSnap] MV
 inner join [Customer].[dbo].[cbiCurrency] CU ON MV.CurrencyID = CU.CurrencyID
 inner join [Customer].[dbo].[cbiDataEntry] DE ON MV.DataEntryID = DE.DataEntryID
inner join myTable ON DE.DataEntryID = myTable.EntityID

Now you just have to tweak the CTE query to get the note that you really want.

I like the cross apply but it does not bring back records if there is no note.

OOPS, sorry, quite right, I should have used
OUTER APPLY
rather than CA.

perhaps the use of a derived table using row_number() to get the latest note
SELECT
      MV.MVDate
    , DE.DataEntryID
    , CU.ISOCurrencyCode
    , DN.Note
FROM [Customer].[snp].[MarketValueSnap] MV
INNER JOIN [Customer].[dbo].[cbiCurrency] CU ON MV.CurrencyID = CU.CurrencyID
INNER JOIN [Customer].[dbo].[cbiDataEntry] DE ON MV.DataEntryID = DE.DataEntryID
LEFT JOIN (
            SELECT
                  InstanceID
                , Note
                , ROW_NUMBER() OVER (PARTITION BY InstanceID 
                                      ORDER BY NoteID DESC /* for latest */) AS RN
            FROM [Customer].[dbo].[docNote]
            WHERE EntityID = 9
      ) AS DN ON DE.DataEntryID = DN.InstanceID AND DN.RN = 1
;
