I have two tables to keep it simple they are ORDERS and ZONES, i have two parameters to pass to the query OrderRef and Zone, so if i have OrderRef = '123' and Zone = 'ONE' i only want results back from ORDERS table where BIN is in ZONE ONE,

ORDERS

OrderRef      Product      Bin      VALUE
123      ABC1      A      9.99
123      ABC2      B      12.99
123      ABC3      H      15.99
123      ABC4      C      4.99
123      ABC5      S      6.99

ZONES

ZONE      BINFROM      BINTO
ONE      A      C
TWO      D      J
THREE      K      Z

Desired Result is for OrderRef ='123' and Zone='ONE' is

OrderRef      Product      Bin      VALUE
123      ABC1      A      9.99
123      ABC2      B      12.99
123      ABC4      C      4.99

Result if OrderRef='123' and Zone='TWO' is
OrderRef      Product      Bin      VALUE
123      ABC3      H      15.99

I could do this with two queries but would like to build it into one,

Hi IanPaskin,

you could try something like ...

SELECT t2.OrderRef, t2.Product, t2.Bin, t2.VALUE
FROM zones t1
JOIN orders t2
ON t2.bin between t1.binfrom and t1.binto AND t2.orderref = '123'
WHERE t1.zone = 'ONE'
