You have to Join the two tables first , so we need to know what is your joint field ,  if you can please post the schema for the two tables and just provide an example for what you want to do exactly

So you have two tables one called products  and it has a field called produt  and another once called  ProductQuantity

and you have another table called sales and it has a filed called produt  and another filed called quantity

is that true ?
