Hi, all

I am using an SQL query in my asp file. In table Order: OrderId, StartPlaceId, EndPlaceId (Both placeIds are foreign keys of table Place). In table Place: PlaceId, PlaceName.

select O.OrderId, P.Name, Po.Name from Order as O, Place as P, Place as Po where O.StartPlaceId = P.PlaceId and O.EndPlaceId = Po.PlaceId

But it doesn't work. Could you please help me out? Thanks.

Hmmm i couldn't see anyting wrong?

Now, i would write the query like this (SQL Server):

select O.OrderId, Ps.Name as StartPlace, Pe.Name As EndPlace
from Order as O
join Place as Ps
on Ps.PlaceId = O.StartPlaceId
join Place as Pe
on Pe.PlaceId = O.EndPlaceId

Now, if you don't use SQL Server, please indicate your db.

Cheers

You don't have any "Name" field in the place table, I suppose it's "PlaceName" you want?

select O.OrderId, P.PlaceName, Po.PlaceName from Order as O, Place as P, Place as Po where O.StartPlaceId = P.PlaceId
and O.EndPlaceId = Po.PlaceId

or

select o.OrdertId, p.PlaceName, po.PlaceName
from Order o
inner join Place p on p.PlaceId=o.StartPlaceId
inner join Place po on po.PlaceId=o.EndPlaceId

Actually the experts here are giving suggessions in a guess.  B'coz the question is not so clear.

The CodeLover has to say more here.  First of all, codelover has to say, whether is it giving any error, or is it giving unexpected rows or is it not giving any row.

What is the error or message or display you are getting.  We would go from there then.

No, ramani_gr, I was not guessing. The information is sufficient (assuming that it is correct), and the error is clear to see.
