I am trying to join three tables; one contains elected official data called Officials (ID, name, etc.), the second contains ethics reports for each official and is joined at the ID (Officials.ID to EthicsRpts.OfficialsID). So the Reports for each official is presented along with some of the officials name data. The query looks like this (very simple):
I need to join a third table - EthicsRptTypes which contains two fields, ID and RptType. RptType has the report name (ex Treasurer's Report). The EthicsRptType.ID is the same as EthicsRpts.RptType. I need to add the EthicsRptType.RptType value for each report and it is joined on EthicsRpts.RptType = EthicsRptTypes.ID. This will be used to replace the numeric value in EthicsRpt with a logical label like Treasurer's Report which comes from the EthicsRptTypes table .
I am a designer and don't get too involved with queries so I am rusty and joining a third table is new to me. Any help appreciated. datatables.pdf
