Help with SQL Join

Thread began 5/10/2012 4:27 pm by iainmacdonald331081 | Last modified 5/11/2012 10:56 am by iainmacdonald331081 | 488 views | 2 replies


Help with SQL Join

I'm just having a bit of troubel getting a Join query correct - I thought it was an Inner Join, but am not getting the results I'd expect.

My table structure is:

Table : lodges

LodgeID (PK)

Table : nominations

NominationID (PK)

So I'm trying to use that structure to replicate this page:


ie a list of lodges for each category they are nominated in.

The query I've tried looks like this:

SELECT nominations.LodgeID, lodges.Lodge, nominations.NominationID, nominations.Category FROM lodges INNER JOIN nominations ON lodges.LodgeID=nominations.NominationID WHERE category='Best Safari Property in Southern Africa' ORDER BY Lodge

But is producing this:


Its the right number of results, but not the right list of lodges - for example British Airwways isn't LodgeID 786

If anyone could help out with the right SQL for this that would be much appreciated.
