Display "ItemCatName", not "ItemCatID"

Thanks in advance for your help.

1. I'm using the sample database provided from WebAssist
2. I've made "item" admin pages (Insert, Search, Results, Update, Delete) with DataAssist - everything works fine.
3. On my Results and Detail page, in the Item Category row, it get the actual ID for the category, not the category name:
itemcategory table is:
ItemCatID ItemCatName
1 CD
2 Gear
Based on the table above, for the category "CD", my Results and Detail page returns "1" instead of "CD"

My understanding was that I needed to use an inner join - I've searched for hours (from WebAssist forums to W3Cschool and everywhere in between) trying to find a combination that works - NO LUCK.

How do I get the "Results" and "Details" page to return the "Name" instead of the "ID"?
