How To Write a Query with an Inner Join


How To Write a Query with an Inner Join? - Oracle DBA FAQ - Understanding SQL SELECT Query Statements



If you want to query from two tables with an inner join, you can use the INNER JOIN ... ON clause in the FROM clause. The following query returns output with an inner join from two tables: employees and departments. The join condition is that the department ID in the employees table equals to the department ID in the departments table:

SQL> SELECT employees.first_name, employees.last_name, 
  2  departments.department_name 
  3  FROM employees INNER JOIN departments 
  4  ON employees.department_id=departments.department_id;

Note that when multiple tables are used in a query, column names need to be prefixed with table names in case the same column name is used in both tables.
