I am not sure what exactly you mean. If you are talking about a regular
SELECT tblTable1.hits, tblTable2.hits FROM tblTable1, tblTable2 ORDER BY
If you are talking about combining the two tables so that all your 'hits'
are in one column then there are a few ways to skin that cute little
kitten (in order of difficulty):
1) Check to see if your databae supports UNION clauses.
2) If not, make a table with the data from the first table then append the
data from the second table. Then query for your combined results and
delete the table from the database. You may run into problems if more than
one person tries to do this at a time, so be careful.
3) Or. create an array using data from the first set then loop through the
second set adding the data from the second set. Then sort.
Good luck and keep us posted.
