Looking for clarification...
Say that I have a user table and group table ->
-- user table --
-- group table --
id user_id group_name
1 1 group_1
2 1 group_2
Would this be the proper way to construct a select statement for this ->
select u.username, g.group_name from user u, group g
where u.user.id = g.user_id and user.id = 1;
The results should look like this ->
foo group 1
foo group 2
What I would like to clarify, is if this is the proper (only) way to
construct a one to many select statement?
I've always thought I was doing something illegal, since username is
displayed more than once, and I would like to shake that thought
off my back.
Other than using "u.user.id" and "user.id" instead of "u.id" (just
typos, I'm sure),
Man, and I proof read the message before I sent it out. ;)
there's nothing really wrong with that query.
do that join this way, though, which may be more "proper":
SELECT u.username, g.group_name FROM user u JOIN group g ON u.id = g.id
WHERE u.id = 1
Thanks for the tip...
