MySQL Query

This query correctly returns 94 rows of data...

SELECT pj.pname 'Project Name'
FROM project pj
WHERE pj.deleted = 'N'
AND pj.pstatus = 'Active'
ORDER BY pj.project_num;

I added a column to the query from the budget table and now I get a Carterian Pordect or 521 rows, even with a valid join condition.

SELECT pj.pname 'Project Name', bu.capital_id 'CAP'
FROM project pj
LEFT JOIN budget bu ON (bu.project_id = pj.project_id)
WHERE pj.deleted = 'N'
AND pj.pstatus = 'Active'
ORDER BY pj.project_num;

Looks like there are multiple records in budget table for each project_id.

In such a case if you need a maximum or minimum or Avg etc..
You need to add a group by on pj.pname
