If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

Good, solid question, Ron. And on a subject that probably can use a bit more propaganda; I think many SQL Server people still don't really know what APPLY is and how it works. And it's good to see the "1" in the question name; I have a feeling that I already know what I can expect in the follow-up question.

My only (minor) gripe is the order in which the answer options are presented. Why not simply order them (lowest to highest or highest to lowest) instead of this random order?

Thank you, Bitbucket. This question is very nice.

Initially I picked 6 and then changed to 5, thinking of the S in A has 6 unique value and then R in A has only 5 unique values and was expecting it will work like LEFT JOIN and was wrong.

Also I was expecting the data will be dirty, but seeing the dataset each row has its unique representation with the combination of A-R and B-R.

Great question!... i kept counting 10 records until I realised that "Doug" would actually be eliminated from the apply.

Thanks.

Good question, but the answer from MS is not really applicable, since we have a sub-query expression and not a TVF in the QTOD example.

The more verbose explanation is documented with the FROM clause:

Good question.

Too early in the morning for me, apparently my brain thinks that 2+2+2+1+0+2 = 8 before breakfast.

Thanks for this question - I really enjoyed trying to work it out in my head. That I then got it right was an added bonus to create a good start to the day.

Being able to copy and paste the the query into management studio is a good way to follow up on this learning - so thanks for the change in policy on QoD's. I never had time to type in some of the queries that were submitted previously so quite possibly did not get the most from them.

Great question! A bit mind numbing at ...let's see...it's 1:30am here ...Doze ... but a good refresher on CROSS APPLY. Thanks!
