Hi,

I expect this is a nice easy one.

I have a statement

SELECT a, Sum(b), Sum(c)
FROM tbl1
Group By a

But I want to restrict the results to certain records found in tbl2

Thanks

Then join tbl1 to tbl2, and the ON clause would spell out the relationship between the two tables such that anything that doesn't match in both tables would not be returned.

SELECT tbl1.a, Sum(tbl1.b), Sum(tbl1.c)
FROM tbl1
   JOIN tbl2 ON tbl1.ID = tbl2.tbl1_ID    -- How the tables are joined 
WHERE tbl2.some_value = "something"   -- If you want to restrict it further based on specific criteria
GROUP BY tbl1.a
