Hey,

in sql server I have two tables. First table is Items. It has two fields, ItemName and ItemCategory. I have a second table, called Categories. It has two fields, Category and AddToList. I want to write ONE query that selectes all Items where the AddToList boolean of the ItemCategory is set to 1. How can I do this? Redesigning the tables is not an option.

e.g.:
Item
====
ItemName: Ventureli
ItemCategory: BIKE
ItemName: Porsche
ItemCategory: CAR
ItemName: BMW
ItemCategory: CAR

ItemCategory
============
Category: BIKE
AddToList: 0
Category: CAR
AddToList: 1

Output of query should be Porsche and BMW.

Hi tsay,

Select * From Items I Inner Join ItemCategory IC On I.ItemCategory = IC.Category Where IC.AddToList = 1

Should do it.
