# Union/Union all usage

Please refer to the question of the next Query
I have two tables.
Tab1
Field
Aid
Bid

Tab2
Field
Aid
Bid

There are records in tab1:
Aid bid
AS1 19
As2 19
As3 23
As4 45
There are records in tab2:
Aid bid
As2 19
As3 19
As4 19

Now we need to find the records with bid = 19 in the two tables, which should be 5 Records.
The method I used is:
Method 1: Select tab1.aid, tab2.aid from tab1, tab2 where tab1.bid = tab2.bid and tab2.bid = 19
Method 2: Select tab1.aid, tab2.aid from tab1 join tab2 on tab1.bid = tab2.bid where tab1.bid = 19
There are six records selected by the above two methods. Why is this problem?
---------------------------------------------------------------

Select * Form tab1 where Bid = 19
Union all
Select * Form tab2 where Bid = 19

---------------------------------------------------------------

Create Table tab1
(Aid char (10 ),
Bid char (10 ))
Go

Insert into tab1 (aid, bid) values ('as1', '19 ')
Insert tab1 values ('as2', '19 ')
Insert tab1 values ('as3', '38 ')
Insert tab1 values ('as4', '45 ')
Go
Create Table tab2
(Aid char (10 ),
Bid char (10 ))
Go
Go
Insert tab2 values ('as2', '19 ')
Insert tab2 values ('as3', '19 ')
Insert tab2 values ('as4', '19 ')
Go
Select * From tab1

Select * From tab1 where tab1.bid = '19' Union all select * From tab2 where tab2.bid = '19'

Bamboga's words:
1. Join produces cartesian products.
2. Union will exclude Repeated Records
3. Union all does not exclude Repeated Records

Union clause
The Union operator combines two query results into a result set. When two tables are merged for connection query: The number and sequence of columns must be consistent during query; data types are compatible.
Syntax:
Select statement
Union [all]
Select statement
Note:
1. The union operation deletes duplicate records from the final result set. If you want to delete duplicate records, use the all keyword.
2. The order by or compute clause cannot be used in the first select statement. It can only be used after the last select clause

For example, if the students of the computer system are not older than 19 years old, they are sorted by age.
Select * from department where dept = 'computer ';
Union;
Select * from student where age <= 19
Order by age DESC
