indeed -- just start with "select ename from scott.emp" to get 14 rows,
and then outer join with scott.dept -- I am pretty sure you'll see 15 rows.
not sure whether you are talking about the left, right, or full outer join,
though ...

Kind regards,

If the relationship to the new table is 1-N, it could potentially add rows
just like a regular join, couldn't it ?


AFAIK, an outer join does NOT add or subtract
rows from a result set.  True?
