Need help with a "Join" script

Trying to get info from from two tables using a join. Tables are Billing Header and Billing Detail. From billing header I want "billing" and "primary code" from Billing Detail I want "Service Date 1". Problem is.. in Billing Header there is one record per bill, in Billing Detail there can me multiple records per bill depending on how many line items were on the bill but the service date is the same for the entire bill. How do I script the query? There are two common colunms in each table, Chart and Billing.

try this:

select b.billing, b.primarycode, bh.servicedate1 from billingheader b
join billingdetail bh on b.chart = bh.chart and b.billing = bh.billing

select Billing Header.Billing, Billing Header.Primary Code, Billing Detail.Service Date 1 from b
join Billing Detail bh on b.chart = bh.chart and Billing Detail.billing = Billing Header.billing   <- is this how it should look?

no quite.  you'll need brackets around the table names if they are two separate words:

select b.Billing, b.Primary Code, bhService Date 1
from [Billing Header] b
join [Billing Detail] bh on b.chart = bh.chart and bh.billing = b.billing

Getting select b.Billing, b.Primary Code, bhService Date 1
from [Billing Header] b
join [Billing Detail] bh on b.chart = bh.chart and bh.billing = b.billing
*** ERROR: Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'Primary'. ***

select b.Billing, b.[Primary Code], bh.[Service Date 1]
from [Billing Header] b
join [Billing Detail] bh on b.chart = bh.chart and bh.billing = b.billing

Thank you sir! You are most kind and generous with your knowledge :) So the need to "Billing Header" b and "Billing Detail" bh? is that just to adreviate?? and what is operator "on", what's is saying??

On is part of the ANSI join statement I used in the query.  As for b and bh, I used them as table aliases.
