Sql non equi join

SQL non Equi Join



The SQL NON EQUI JOIN uses comparison operator instead of the equal sign like >, <, >=, <= along with conditions.


FROM table_name1, table_name2 
WHERE table_name1.column [> |  < |  >= | <= ] table_name2.column;


Here is an example of non equi join in SQL between two tables

Sample table : orders

Sample table : customer

To get order number and order amount columns from orders table aliased as 'a' and customer name and working area columns from customer table aliased as 'b' after joining said two tables with following condition -

1. order amount of orders table matches any of the opening amount of customer table,

the following sql statement can be used :

SELECT a.ord_num,a.ord_amount,b.cust_name,b.working_area 
FROM orders a,customer b 
WHERE a.ord_amount 
BETWEEN b.opening_amt AND b.opening_amt;
