Joins are used to query data from two or more tables, based on a relationship between certain columns in these tables.
Different SQL JOINs
Before we continue with examples, we will list the types of JOIN you can use, and the differences between them.
- JOIN: Return rows when there is at least one match in both tables
- LEFT JOIN: Return all rows from the left table, even if there are no matches in the right table
- RIGHT JOIN: Return all rows from the right table, even if there are no matches in the left table
- FULL JOIN: Return rows when there is a match in one of the tables
