A SQL join clause combines records from two or more tables in a database. It creates a set that can be saved as a table or used as it is. A JOIN is a means for combining fields from two tables by using values common to each. ANSI standard SQL specifies four types of JOIN: INNER, OUTER, LEFT, and RIGHT. As a special case, a table can JOIN to itself in a self-join. A programmer writes a JOIN statement to identify the records for joining. If the evaluated predicate is true, the combined record is then produced in the expected format, a record set or a temporary table.
