Display "ItemCatName", not "ItemCatID"

Thread began 4/20/2010 2:45 am by jshafor | Last modified 4/26/2010 11:22 am by jshafor | 1098 views | 8 replies



I figured out what the problem was. I had two columns that were labeled identically in my items table and itemcategory table. I changed the itemCatID to itemCat in the item table, and left the itemCatID alone in the itemcategory table.

To recap (the final process that produced the needed result):

1. I changed the WADAitem recordset code (from Dreamweaver "Server Behaviors" panel) to:

SELECT item.*, itemcategory.ItemCatName
FROM item INNER JOIN itemcategory ON item.ItemCat = itemcategory.ItemCatID
(click on "test" (Dreamweaver) and you'll see the result of the inner join in the last column)

2. I inserted the ItemCatName binding (from the "Bindings" panel).

NOTE: The column ItemCatName in the Bindings panel is the result of the inner join listed above; it's NOT an actual column in the table. This principle will work for categories, states . . . whatever information that will be duplicated from record to record.

THANKS TO JASON for all your help!
