This isn't a PHP question at all.  It's a MySQL question.
However, answers are below, with forwards to the appropriate lists for

    Okay, I had a difficult time understanding what it is you need,
but hopefully got enough from your message to be able to help you out.
 What I think you may be looking for is something like this:

SELECT * FROM tableb WHERE firstdata='1' AND id IN (SELECT DISTINCT id
FROM tablea ORDER BY id ASC);

    That will select only unique `id` columns from `tablea` and select
only the rows from `tableb` where the `id` columns match and
`firstdata` is set to '1'.  You can then modify that query as needed.
