    Unanswered: very interesting !

    Below is the statement given in MicroSoft SQL Server migration documentation :

    "When a view is defined with an outer join and is queried with a qualification on a column from the inner table of the outer join, the results from SQL Server and Oracle can differ. In most cases, Oracle views are easily translated into SQL Server views"

    Please can anyone explain the above with some examples. I don't find such a 'CREATE VIEW' statement existsing in two DBs, which results in different result set. Am I wrong ?

    I suspect the different result sets are data dependent & involve NULL values.
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.
    Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.
