Database showing ID values not Text Labels
This is probably a basic and simple question, but when I am using a seperate table to display values in my database I need it to show the text column not the column ID. For Instance:
I have a table of musical artists and then a seperate table with the artist Genres. The Genres table has a genreID column and a genre column, i.e. genreID = 1, genre = Pop/Rock
How do I get my database to show the Pop/Rock text in a web page instead of the number "1" when I am using the genre table as a relationship to populate a dynamic drop down?
I have a feeling this was poorly explained and way confusing...
Sorry! But this seems like it would be a common issue!
