I tried a buch of JOINs, but with no luck The problem comes in with I have to do a different query for each contact_name values for every record.
SELECT contact_value FROM egw_addressbook_extra WHERE contact_name='Supplier' and contact_id=' 1' SELECT contact_value FROM egw_addressbook_extra WHERE contact_name='RANO' and contact_id=' 1' SELECT contact_value FROM egw_addressbook_extra WHERE contact_name='PrevSystem' and contact_id=' 1' SELECT contact_value FROM egw_addressbook_extra WHERE contact_name='Dynamic' and contact_id=' 1' Then add those values to the array created from query of the first table Thanks...

I can query both tables, but can't find a way to combine the results in one array. The problem comes in with the second table. It has a weird layout. The second table only has four fields. They are: contact_id, contact_owner, contact_name, and contact_value a.. The 'contact_id' needs to be linked to 'id' field from the first table. b.. The contact_name is a field I need to use to reference what i'm looking for. example... contact_name HAS values of RANO, PrevSys, Supplier, Dynamic each of them has the same contact_id different contact_names with different contact_values To query the second table I do something like this: SELECT contact_value FROM egw_addressbook_extra WHERE contact_name='Supplier' and contact_id=' XXX' The xxx is the ID from the first table. ----------------------------------------- Table 1: ID NAME BUSINESS ADDRESS CITY PHONE 1 John Smith Smith's Phone Co. 100 Main St Someplace 555-5555 2 Joe Brown Brown's Shoe Store 105 Grant St. This City 555-0001 Table 2: CONTACT_ID CONTACT_NAME CONTACT_VALUE CONTACT_OWNER 1 PrevSys NONE 4 1 RANO 100102 4 1 Supplier TrueValue 4 1 Dynamic 192.168.0.0 4 2 PrevSys OLD POS SYS 4 2 RANO 100105 4 2 Supplier Orgill 4 2 Dynamic 192.168.100.0 4 I want to query both tables and create a array. The extra fields from table two need to have their own field in the array. I need to call those extra fields in the array by the contact_name field... example.... $myrow[supplier] $myrow[PrepSys] $myrow[name] I have tried alot of stuff to get this done, but i think i was very off task. Some help/guide is needed.... I'm new!!!! Thanks... Matt
