try something like this

Select * FROM sales_order so INNER JOIN sales_order_line sol on so.keyfield=sol.keyfield WHERE sol.so_bo_suffix IS NOT NULL

You need to define the JOIN condition which connects lines to sales_order table, e.g.:

string strSQLget_selectrow =
"Select * FROM sales_order so INNER JOIN sales_order_line sol ON so.order_num = sol.order_num WHERE sol.so_bo_suffix IS NOT NULL";

You have to replace the column name by the one which exists in your tables.

You are missing "ON" clause in which you have to define common field between two table.
