Join Query

I have an inner join query that not's pulling the data that I need. It needs to pull one record where the int = 14 in the tblOnlineAAPAdjusters table.  But it's pulling all the record id's that have joined by vchConfirmNum and vchPaymentNum.  How can I get it to pull that one value?

Select vchRecordID
	from tblAAPPayment p
	join tblOnlineAAPAdjusters a on a.vchConfirmNum = p.vchPaymentNum 
	where a.intID = '14'

That's how join works-->the "14" is on the one side of a 1-many relationship.

If you have this:

Table A
X      13                  
Y      14
Z      15
       
Table P
Y       two
Y       three
Y       one


Then the result is this

Table A join P
Y 14 one
Y 14 two
Y 14 three

If you want to consolidate that to a single-row result, then you need to explain how you want to aggregate or eliminate the related values in the other table


Perhaps you could illustrate your desired outcome with a small amount of table data

is a.intID an actual integer?  If so don't wrap it in quotes.

Select vchRecordID, a.intID
      from tblAAPPayment p
      join tblOnlineAAPAdjusters a on a.vchConfirmNum = p.vchPaymentNum
      where a.intID = 14 -- NO QUTOES


Also added the a.intID column for now to ensure you're not needing other filters.  Is there only one record where a.intID = 14?

Yes it's only one value that = 14.  I removed the quotes and it's still pulling all of them.

It sound like you have a one to many relationship between tblAAPPayment and tblOnlineAAPAdjusters .  How many records are you pulling? Also, the records that you pull do they have an intID of 14?

Select a.vchRecordID
      from tblAAPPayment p
      join tblOnlineAAPAdjusters a on a.vchConfirmNum = p.vchPaymentNum
      where a.intID = 14

which table does vchRecordID below to?

the RecordID belongs to tblAAPPayment.  tblOnlineAAPAdjusters doesn't have a vchRecordID, but it has the confirmation num which is the same as the paymentnum in the Payment table.

What is the datatype of tblOnlineAAPAdjusters .vchConfirmNum  and
tblOnlineAAPAdjusters .vchPaymentNum?  


Try

Select a.vchRecordID
      from tblAAPPayment p
      inner join tblOnlineAAPAdjusters a on a.vchConfirmNum = p.vchPaymentNum
      where a.intID = 14
