Introduction to subqueries

A relational database allows you to store related data in more than one table. In addition to being able to extract data from related tables using a join, you can also extract it using a subquery. A subquery is a SELECT statement nested within the SELECT, WHERE, or HAVING clause of a parent SQL statement.

Subqueries make some queries easier to write than joins, and there are queries that cannot be written without using subqueries.
