SQL> SELECT ENAME,JOB,SAL.DEPT.DEPTNO,DNAME FROM EMP,DEPT WHERE EMP.DEPTNO(+)=DEPT.DEPTNO AND DEPT.DEPTNO NOT IN (10,20);

Explanation: It is clear from the query that it is missing ENAME, JOB, and SAL for the department number 40. it is due to the information missing in the employee table but it still shows the available information .i.e. DEPTNO, DNAME. So in the EMP table there was deficit of information, hence the (+) operator placed on EMP side.

A full outer join combines the results of both left and right outer joins. The joined table will contain all records from both tables, and fill in NULLs for missing matches on either side.

SQL> SELECT EMP.ENAME.DEPT.DEPTNO FROM EMP FUll OUTER JOIN DEPT ON(EMP.DEPTNO=DEPT.DEPTN);
