  SQL Server Tips by Gama and Naughter


Cross join

A cross join is a Cartesian product, that is, it combines each row of one table with each row from the other. If one table has n rows and the other m, the result will be n*m rows.

Example: Using the ANSI SQL-92 syntax to get all the titles published by “New Moon Books”.

SELECT dbo.publishers.pub_name, dbo.titles.title
FROM dbo.publishers CROSS JOIN dbo.titles
WHERE (dbo.publishers.pub_name = 'New Moon Books')
and dbo.publishers.pub_id = dbo.titles.pub_id
