Subj:   Re: Populating one column with data from either of two table.
 
From:   Barbara George

Two options come to mind, if I have understood the question:

1. Coalesce(col1, col2) - if col1 is not null then use col1 else use col2

2. Case when (condition1) then col1 else col2 end


The 'case' option can be included in an aggregate function such as sum(), max()
