Inner Join in SQL

FROM table1 name
INNER JOIN table2 name
ON table1.coumn_x = table2.column_y;
where SELECT, INNER JOIN, and ON are the keywords, columns is the list of columns, table1 is the first table and table2 is the second table, and column_x and column_y are the columns for performing the inner join, followed by a semicolon.
Let’s apply inner join to two tables, the employee table and the department table
Select employee.e_name, employee.e_dept, department.d_name, department.d_location from employee
INNER JOIN department
ON employee.e_dept = department.d_name;
