sql server query

I have a query just for demonstration, I need to create a query that tells me where strshort matches but the client is different its all in one table so I am not sure how to create that.

My feeble attempt after looking at microsoft site
SELECT StrShort1.StrShort, StrShort2.ClientName
FROM TblWords.strshort AS StrShort1
     JOIN TblWords.strshort AS StrShort2
       ON (StrShort1.strshort = StrShort2.strshort)
WHERE StrShort1.clientName <>StrShort1.clientName;

Open in new window



<TblWords StrShort="V70 XL" ClientName="Abi" />
<TblWords StrShort="V70 XL" ClientName="Cap" />
<TblWords StrShort="V70 XL" ClientName="Glass" />
<TblWords StrShort="V70 XL" ClientName="Smmt" />

the above would present as a match as strshort is all the same but with different clients

<TblWords StrShort="V70 XL 10V" ClientName="Abi" />
<TblWords StrShort="V70 XL 10V" ClientName="Smmt" />

the above would present as a match as strshort is all the same but with different clients

<TblWords StrShort="V70 XL" ClientName="Smmt" />
<TblWords StrShort="V70 XL 10V" ClientName="Abi" />

the above dont match as strshort is different.

use Dictionary
select StrShort, ClientName
from TblWords
where StrShort like'v70%xl%'
group by StrShort,  ClientName
