    I need to join the results of two queries horizontally. Consider a query below which will return two rows: Select * from Salary where sal>10000

    The result of the query above should be joined side by side with the result of the query below which will again return two rows.Or I need to just concatenate the two result sets:

    (Select 'xyz' from dual union Select 'abc' from dual)

    Please suggest how this can be done as I tried to do this with the query below but it returns a cartesian product:

    Select * from ( Select * from salary where sal>10000) TEMP1, (Select 'xyz' from dual union Select 'abc' from dual) TEMP2

    You have used nothing as a join predicate; you can get nothing else except a cartesian product. Since you haven't posted any data from this salary table no one can provide any assistance to you. Post some sample records from the salary table, including column headers (or post the table definition) so we can all have the same points of reference.
