In the following example, the INTO clause in the second SELECT statement specifies that the table named ProductResults holds the final result set of the union of the selected columns of the ProductModel and Gloves tables. The Gloves table is created in the first SELECT statement.


Each expression may be composed of output columns or it may be an ordinalnumber selecting an output column by position (starting at one). TheORDER BY clause is evaluated after any GROUP BY or HAVING clauseand before any OFFSET, LIMIT or FETCH FIRST clause.The default null ordering is NULLS LAST, regardless of the ordering direction.

Even though you can create a union query by directly writing the SQL syntax in the SQL view, you might find it easier to build it in parts with select queries. You can then copy and paste the SQL parts into a combined union query.

Repeat steps 5 through 10 until you have copied and pasted all of the SQL statements for the select queries into the SQL view window of the union query. Do not delete the semicolon or type anything following the SQL statement for the last select query.

If you're very comfortable writing SQL syntax, you can certainly write your own SQL statement for the union query directly into SQL view. However, you might find it useful to follow the approach of copying and pasting SQL from other query objects. Each query can be much more complicated than the simple select query examples used here. It can be to your advantage to create and test each query carefully before combining them in the union query. If the union query fails to run, you can adjust each query individually until it succeeds and then rebuild your union query with the corrected syntax.

In the example from the previous section using the Northwind database, only data from two tables are combined. However, you can combine three or more tables very easily in a union query. For example, building on the previous example, you might want to also include the names of the employees in the query output. You can accomplish that task by adding a third query and combining with the previous SQL statement with an additional UNION keyword like this:

A common usage for a union query is to serve as the record source for a combo box control on a form. You can use that combo box to select a value to filter the form's records. For example, filtering the employee records by their city.

Now that you have a completed union query displaying each city name only once, along with an option that effectively selects all cities, you can use this query as the record source for a combo box on a form. Using this specific example as a model, you could create a combo box control on a form, set this query as its record source, set the Column Width property of the Filter column to 0 (zero) to hide it visually, and then set the Bound Column property to 1 to indicate the index of the second column. In the Filter property of the form itself, you can then add in code such as the following to activate a form filter using the value of what was selected in the combo box control:

Specifies the table used in the current query, replacing the current table name if one has already been specified. This is typically used in the sub-queries performed in the advanced where or union methods. Optional second argument for passing options:* only: if true, the ONLY keyword is used before the tableName to discard inheriting tables' data.

In Oracle, the minus keyword is used instead. Note that if there are multiple columns, say ID and Name, the column should be explicitly stated in Oracle queries: Select ID from test_a minus select ID from test_b

This statement will allow the lookup to display a list of values with one row added to show 'No Subject' null value.(NOTE: We found that you cannot place the @[email protected] keyword in the second select statement for the union, the Lookup will not get registered if you attempt to do so.)

In the first statement, there are no duplicates in the union between TableB and TableC. Then, in the union between that set and TableA, the ALL keyword includes the duplicates. In the second statement, duplicates are included in the union between TableA and TableB but are eliminated in the subsequent union with TableC. The ALL keyword has no effect on the final result of this expression.

This conditional lets you compare an expression against another expression. You can use it to selectively retrieve only the relevant rows of a recordset. Like the comparison conditional, the BETWEEN conditional also compares; however, the BETWEEN conditional compares against a range of values. Therefore, its syntax requires two values, which are inclusive, a minimum and a maximum. Separate these values with the AND keyword.

Query of Queries supports the ORDER BY clause to sort. Make sure that it is the last clause in your SELECT statement. You can sort by multiple columns, by relative column position, by nonselected columns. You can specify a descending sort direction with the DESC keyword (by default, most RDBMS sorts are ascending, which makes the ASC keyword unnecessary).

The optional REPEATABLE clause specifies a seed number or expression to use for generating random numbers within the sampling method. The seed value can be any non-null floating-point value. Two queries that specify the same seed and argument values will select the same sample of the table, if the table has not been changed meanwhile. But different seed values will usually produce different samples. If REPEATABLE is not given then a new random sample is selected for each query, based upon a system-generated seed. Note that some add-on sampling methods do not accept REPEATABLE, and will always produce new samples on each use.

In SQL, the keywords are the reserved words that are used to perform various operations in the database. There are many keywords in SQL, and as SQL is case insensitive, it does not matter if we use, for example, SELECT or select.

The SQL Standard says that NULL is a state of a datatype rather than a value. So, how then do you sort data? You might expect from the behavior of NULL values in expressions that sorting by a nullable column will result in those rows that have a NULL value in a sort column being scattered randomly around the sort order. Not so. The NULLs are sorted as if they were the same value, all together. Where in the sort order should they be? The SQL Standard allows you to specify whether they float to the top or sink to the bottom of the sort order with the keywords NULLS FIRST and NULLS LAST. SQL Server is always NULLS FIRST. 041b061a72
