I need a little help with sql query.

I have the tblAuthor(authorID,surname,givenname)
tblAssociation(associationID, publicationID,AuthorID)

I am trying to list coauthors here of given authorID.

Authors are tied to publication.

select authorID,surname,givenname from tblauthor a  inner join tblAssociation b on
a.authorid=b.authorid where b.publicationid in (
select publid from association where authorid=xxx)

Is that correct?

I don't think you need the inner query. Try:

SELECT auth.givenname, auth.surname
FROM tblAuthor auth
INNER JOIN tblAssociation asoc
ON auth.authorID = asoc.authorID
WHERE asoc.publicationID = xxx

With given authorid, I am trying to find any other authors who are tied to that publicationid.

select a.authorID,a.surname,a.givenname, b.associationID
from tblauthor a  inner join tblAssociation b on
a.authorid=b.authorid where authorID=xxx

Your sql finds all the publication for a search author.


I am trying to find all other authors who worked on that same publication with given an authorid.

ex) publication1, author1,author3,author4
      publciation2, author1,author2,author5
      publication3, author2,author1,author7
      publication4,author6,author7

 tblassociation(1,1,1)
 tblassociation(2,1,3)
 tblassociation(3,1,4)
 tblassociation(4,2,1)
 tblassociation(5,2,2)
 tblassociation(6,2,5)
 tblassociation(7,3,2)
 tblassociation(8,3,1)
 tblassociation(9,3,7)
 tblassociation(10,4,6)
 tblassociation(11,4,7)

This brings back what I want.

How do I tie this up to the author main form?
If author main form's id is 3, how do I pass this to the subform whose data source is this query?





SELECT Affiliation.AuthorID, Author.Surname, Author.Given_Name
FROM Author INNER JOIN Affiliation ON Author.AuthorID = Affiliation.AuthorID
WHERE (((Affiliation.PublicationID) In (SELECT Affiliation.PublicationID FROM Affiliation WHERE Affiliation.AuthorID=[xxxx])));

you are posting different table names from your original post and up to your last post.

this is not a good way to present your problem..

anyway, see this link to help you get your main/sub form working
