MyQL JOIN query

I am trying to write a query that joins two tables together
The first table is called customers and the info I need from that table is customerid, name and email
The second table is called orders and it also contains the customerid. This table also contains a column called order_status and this holds the key to the query.
In laymen’s language the query should be:
I need customerid, name, email from table customers (join table customers on table orders using customerid as the joiner) where order_status  is equal to “FULL”

I have tried this myself and come up with:
SELECT  customerid, name, email
FROM customers  JOIN orders ON customers. customerid = customers.customerid
WHERE order_status = FULL
But this does not work
Assistance much appreciated.

Hi,

SELECT  
           customerid, name, email
FROM
         customers  
JOIN
        orders ON
      customers. customerid = orders .customerid
WHERE
    order_status = 'FULL'

Hope it helps.

Is it that data in orders is not optional .
IF yes then use 'LEFT JOIN' instead of just 'JOIN'

select customers.customerid, name , email from customers inner join orders on orders.customerid = customers.customerid where orders.order_status = 'FULL'

you need to name the table.field if there are more options
