Join Methods (LINQ to Entities)

[This topic is pre-release documentation and is subject to change in future releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

The LINQ join methods are supported in LINQ to Entities, with the exception of those that accept an IEqualityComparer because the comparer cannot be translated to the data source. For more information, see Standard Query Operators in LINQ to Entities Queries. The following table lists the supported and unsupported join methods.
