If you want to query from two tables with a right outer join, you can use the RIGHT OUTER JOIN ... ON clause in the FROM clause. The following query returns output with a right outer join from two tables: fyi_links and fyi_rates. The join condition is that the id in the fyi_links table equals to the id in the fyi_rates table:

SELECT l.id, l.url, r.comment FROM fyi_links l 
   RIGHT OUTER JOIN fyi_rates r ON l.id = r.id
GO
id      url                     comment
101     dev.fyicenter.com       The best
102     dba.fyicenter.com       Well done
103     sqa.fyicenter.com       Thumbs up
NULL    NULL                    Number 1
NULL    NULL                    Not bad
NULL    NULL                    Good job
NULL    NULL                    Nice tool

Note that a right outer join may return extra rows from the second (right) table that do not satisfy the join condition. In those extra rows, columns from the first (left) table will be given null values.

The extra rows returned from the right outer join in this example represents rates that have no links in the above example.
