In your example, I don't find Frank having any fruits or veggies.
You can try like this.
select name,
       case when rn1 >= rn2 then Fruit end as Fruit, 
	   case when rn2 >= rn1 then Veggie end as Veggie
  from Tperson p
  left join (select *,row_number() over (partition by idperson order by idFruitPerson) rn1 from TFruitPerson) f on p.idperson = f.idperson
  left join (select * , row_number() over (partition by idperson order by idVeggiePerson) rn2 from Tpersonveggie) v on p.idperson = v.idperson

Open in new window


Tested with your sample data.
declare @Tperson table(idperson int, name varchar(10))
declare @TFruitPerson table(idFruitPerson int, Fruit varchar(10),idperson int)
declare @Tpersonveggie table(idVeggiePerson int, Veggie varchar(10),idperson int)

insert @Tperson values (1,'John'),(2,'Paul'),(3,'Frank')
insert @TFruitPerson values (1,'Apple',1),(2,'coconut',1),(3,'cherry',2)
insert @Tpersonveggie values (1,'lettuce',1),(2,'Spinash',2),(3,'avocado',2)

select name,
       case when rn1 >= rn2 then Fruit end as Fruit, 
	   case when rn2 >= rn1 then Veggie end as Veggie
  from @Tperson p
  left join (select *,row_number() over (partition by idperson order by idFruitPerson) rn1 from @TFruitPerson) f on p.idperson = f.idperson
  left join (select * , row_number() over (partition by idperson order by idVeggiePerson) rn2 from @Tpersonveggie) v on p.idperson = v.idperson

/*
name	Fruit	Veggie
John	Apple	lettuce
John	coconut	NULL
Paul	cherry	Spinash
Paul	NULL	avocado
Frank	NULL	NULL
*/

To obtain the result desired is impossible because there is no connection between Frank and Cherry as visible in the previous answer.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Sharath, thanks but it does not work properly if a person has 2 fruits AND 2 veggies, I am getting a result of 4 lines instead of 2.

try this.
declare @Tperson table(idperson int, name varchar(10))
declare @TFruitPerson table(idFruitPerson int, Fruit varchar(10),idperson int)
declare @Tpersonveggie table(idVeggiePerson int, Veggie varchar(10),idperson int)

insert @Tperson values (1,'John'),(2,'Paul'),(3,'Frank')
insert @TFruitPerson values (1,'Apple',1),(2,'coconut',1),(3,'cherry',2)
insert @Tpersonveggie values (1,'lettuce',1),(2,'Spinash',2),(3,'avocado',2),(4,'spinach',1),(5,'veg',1)

select *
  from @Tperson p
  left join (
select coalesce(f.idperson,v.idperson) idperson, Fruit,Veggie
  from (select *, row_number() over (partition by idperson order by idFruitPerson) rn1 from @TFruitPerson) f
  full join (select *,row_number() over (partition by idperson order by idVeggiePerson) rn2 from @Tpersonveggie) v on f.idperson = v.idperson and rn1=rn2) fv
  on p.idperson = fv.idperson
/*
idperson	name	idperson	Fruit	Veggie
1	John	1	Apple	lettuce
1	John	1	coconut	spinach
1	John	1	NULL	veg
2	Paul	2	cherry	Spinash
