    I have a left join between a table & a query but require the query to have another left join from another table. Is it therefore possible to nest a left join within another left join?
    thanks!

    Yes, you can have more than 1 left outer join in SQL Server.

    Example:
    select *
    from tablea left outer join tableb on tablea.col = tableb.col
    left outer join tablec on tablea.col = tablec.col
