I have coded values in table A and table B however I need to view these easily in a view called MyView, as per below. There are millions of rows in table A and table B so I have trimmed this down significantly as per below snapshot.

table A            
ValueID      field      value
1      type      Compact
2      type      Convertible
3      type      Estate
4      type      Less than 1 year old
5      age      1 - 2 years old
6      age      2 - 3 years old
7      age      3 - 4 years old
8      age      4 - 5 years old
            
table B            
userID      type      age
251846      1      5
251847      3      8
            
MyView            
UserID      Type      Age
251846      Compact      1 - 2 years old
251847      Estate      4 - 5 years old

Thanks for the grade.  Good luck with your project.  -Jim

btw, in Table A, are the ValueID numbers unique?  
If yes, then you can lose the '... and a.field='something' part, especially if field is not part of an index, which would mean the query would do a slower scan instead of a seek.
If no, then you'll need it.

ValueID is an autoid field. I will give the code a try without that element in place, thanks.
