In Sybase ASE 12.5 we have users in groups.  I need a select statement that will give me the name of the user's group based on the suid.  Can this be done and if so how?

This gave me a list of the users that are in a particular group.  I actually needed the name of the group.  I noticed that the actual group names are in the same table but have an suid of -2.  I just asked for the name where suid < 0 and that gave the name of the group.  Thank you.

My query gives you requested result. You have probably mistyped last part. If you use "and u1.gid = u2.gid", you will get the list of users in the group. But with correct "and u1.gid = u2.uid" you will get the group name.

That is fine. I just wanted a solution. Don't really care about the points.  The commenter can have them.  I copied and pasted the commenter's code so there was no mistyping. I didn't mark that as the solution because others looking at this question need to know that there is another step to actually get the name of the group.
