Re: left outer join on same table
The condition T2.field6='yyyyyyy;' is tested after the outer join. As a
result you won't see any non-matching results.
You'll need a subquery to enforce that condition. Alternatively, adding ' OR
T2.field6 IS NULL' might work for you too. Just make sure to use parens
around the OR clause. But that's probably not what you want - then, use a
subquery.
