# 3157 Query Optimizer Re-Ordering Joins Improperly When Joins Are Already in the Correct Order

I've got what appears to be a bug on inner joins between three tables when the third table is joined by a field from each of the first two tables.

The following query shows the problem. These are all inner joins, so any records in the result set should have the
same value in both poi.stockcode and vc.stockcode since that is one of the joins. But running the query gives the following results

2713,"SYNNEX", "AC-AD-BAR-NUS2#0-USB", "MB-AS-775-P5BVM-MTX", "4220130"

As you can see, the 3rd and 4th columns are returning different values but they should be the same.

If I use a outer join between the vendcd and poitem table, the correct results are returned:


select po.number, po.vendor, poi.stockcode, vc.stockcode, vc.vendorcode 
from po
  join poitem poi on po.number = poi.number
  join vendcd vc on poi.stockcode = vc.stockcode and po.vendor = vc.vendor
where number = 2713
