Hi,everyone!I have two tables
T1
s t
s1 t1
s2 t2
s3 t3
T2
s x y
s1 x1 y1
s2 x1 y2
s1 x2 y3
s3 x2 y4
And I want to get the following data by joining T1 and T2.
t1 x1 y1
t2 x1 y2
t3 x1 0
t1 x2 y3
t2 x2 0
t3 x2 y4
How can I get it?

Where does come t3/0 and t2/0?

Michel

Thank you again ,Michel!
I can get the answer by the statement below.But I think it a little compicated!
select t1.t,t2.x,nvl(t2.y,0)
from t1,t2,(select distinct x from t2) t3
where t1.s=t2.s(+)
and t3.x=t2.x(+)

This should work:
SQL> SELECT t, 'x1', nvl(y, '0') FROM t1, t2 WHERE t1.s = t2.s(+) and x(+) = 'x1'
2 UNION
3 SELECT t, 'x2', nvl(y, '0') FROM t1, t2 WHERE t1.s = t2.s(+) and x(+) = 'x2';
T 'X NV
  
t1 x1 y1
t1 x2 y3
t2 x1 y2
t2 x2 0
t3 x1 0
t3 x2 y4
6 rows selected.

Michel Cadot wrote on Sun, 13 January 2008 08:48  Don't change the post and the question after we replied to it. Correct in a nex post.
You still does not explain the rule.
Why t3 x1 0 and t2 x2 0? What happens if you add 's2 x3 y5' or 's2 x2 y5' or 's4 x2 y1' or...?

Hi,Michel
I'm showing my sql which is a little complex.
T1
s t
s1 t1
s2 t2
s3 t3
T2
s x y
s1 x1 y1
s2 x1 y2
s1 x2 y3
s3 x2 y4
result:
t1 x1 y1
t2 x1 y2
t3 x1 0
t1 x2 y3
t2 x2 0
t3 x2 y4
This sql statement works:
select tt.s,tt.x,nvl(t2.y,0) y from
(select * from t1,(select distinct x from t2)) tt,
t2
where tt.s=t2.s(+)
and tt.x=t2.x(+)
But I want to have a simpler one,any suggestion!
Thank you in advance!

You have to explain IN WORDS what is the rule.
Regards
Michel

Hi,Michel!Thank you again.
Let me explain it like this:
In table T2,we group it by column X,then we get two groups x1,and x2,then we have a natural join on T1 and the grouped X,as shown below:
temp
s X t
s1 x1 t1
s2 x1 t2
s3 x1 t3
s1 x2 t1
s2 x2 t2
s3 x2 t3
If we have more groups(by X) in T2,such as x3,x4,we get the data shown below:
temp
s X t
s1 x1 t1
s2 x1 t2
s3 x1 t3
s1 x2 t1
s2 x2 t2
s3 x2 t3
s1 x3 t1
s2 x3 t2
s3 x3 t3
s1 x4 t1
s2 x4 t2
s3 x4 t3
Then we let temp left join T2 on temp.s=T2.s and temp.x=T2.X
Thank you in advance.

Specifications MUST not refer to any data. It must explain what we must have for any data.
Try to put your specifications WITHOUT refering to x1, x2 and so on.
AFTER that, you can explain how the rule applies to your example to generate the ouput.
You have to understand that SQL is the easiest part once you have clean the specifications and have clear specifications.

Michel
