Whats the difference between inner join and outer join?

2 Answers

Specified in the WHERE clause, joins simply combine data from multiple tables in the result. INNER JOIN, the most common, returns the rows for which the given ON condition is satisfied for both tables. LEFT/RIGHT OUTER JOIN statements return all the rows from the specified table regardless if there is a match in the unspecified table, with the matching rows specified in the ON condition in the unspecified table. Less

Inner Join returns values where the key between the two tables are the same, and values are present in both tables. Outer Join returns the Values from both tables, based on the key, even if there is not any data the joining table. If not value is available, then NULL is returned for that specific Row Data based on the Key Less

It's the duty of sales person to sell the product to the costumers.That is converting the leads to purchase Less

Marketing and sales both are interlinked with each other.However marketing is about analysing the customer needs, development of the product, advertisetising the product and when the product gets into the market its task of the sales man to persuade customer to buy the product. Less

Sales target on individuals or small groups. Marketing, on the other hand, targets a larger group o the general public. 2. Marketing means generating leads or prospects. sales mean converting the leads or prospects into purchases and orders. 3. Marketing involves a longer process of building a name for a brand and pursuing the customer to buy it even if they do not need it. Whereas sales only involve a short term of finding the target consumer. Less

Imagine, if you're outside a room and there are 3 (three) switches right next to you, each switch corresponds to a bulb placed in the closed room right in-front of you, how would you know without only going inside the room once, that which switch exactly corresponds to which bulb? (You can only go inside once)

6 Answers

Switch on switches 1 & 2, wait a moment and switch off number 2. Enter the room. Whichever bulb is on is wired to switch 1, whichever is off and hot is wired to switch number 2, and the third is wired to switch 3. Or switchon 1, then wait for a while and switch on 2. When you get in to the room two of the bulbs will be on but one will be much hotter although 1st one is more logical Less

There are several ways of checking the switches. Turn on switches 1 and 3 and then, after a few seconds turn of the third switch and enter the room. The light which is on is switch #1 and the hot or warm light bulb is switch #3. The cold bulb is switch #2. The same exercise can be done using switches 2 and 3 or switches 1 and 2. Less
