Query question

I have this query:

SELECT
    pd.person_id, pd.first,pd.email
FROM
    pd
INNER JOIN
    srf ON pd.person_key = srf.person_key
WHERE
    srf.survey_option_key IN (297,298,299)
AND
    srf.survey_question_key = '43'
AND
    pd.is_subscriber ='1'
ORDER BY
    pd.person_id ASC;

Open in new window


I would like to also grab data from a column called "option_text" in the sod table. I am having trouble figuring out how to join

sod.option_text ON sod.survey_option_key =  srf.survey_option_key and display the results . Any ideas?

Should just be:

SELECT
    pd.person_id, pd.first,pd.email,sod.option_text
FROM
    pd
INNER JOIN
    srf ON pd.person_key = srf.person_key
INNER JOIN
    ON srf.survey_option_key =  sod.survey_option_key
WHERE
    srf.survey_option_key IN (297,298,299)
AND
    srf.survey_question_key = '43'
AND
    pd.is_subscriber ='1'
ORDER BY
    pd.person_id ASC

Open in new window


Or maybe you need LEFT OUTER JOIN instead of INNER JOIN, in case the entry on sod is optional.

I had previously tried your solution and when I do, i get a message :

Table 'sod.option_text' doesn't exist

and it does , in fact, exist.

sorry typo.  line 8 above should be "sod ON srf.survey_option_key = sod.survey_option_key"

Odd.  Can you share a dump of the tables so I can test it from my end?

I believe so,

PD and SRF share  a unique key that I am able to join on,  sod does not have that same key, but it does have a key that matches up with SRF

IE:

PD & SRF share "person_id"

SRF & SOD share "survey_option_key"
