I have 2 tables whit  this attributes
   TABLE A = person --> id | firstname  | lastname     |   jobtitle
   TABLE B = contact--> id | id_person  | description  | secondlastname
 
This is my query in mysql, operating correctly

$query_services = mysql_query("SELECT A.*,B.* FROM person A LEFT JOIN contact B ON A.id=B.person_id WHERE $con ORDER BY A.id ");

while ($row_services = mysql_fetch_array($query_services)) {
$id=$row_services['id'];
$nam=$row_services['firstname'];
$last=$row_services['lastname'];
$seclast=$row_services['secondlastname'];

MY PROBLEM IS
I WANT TO GET THE 'id' = $id OF TABLE 'person'
BUT, I get 'id' the table 'contact'. (I do not want that record)

should I do?

Hi pixegoo,

The query returns two columns labelled 'id' and you want a specific one.  Instead of selecting A.*, B.*, just select the columns that you want.

$query_services = mysql_query("SELECT A.*,B.id_person,m B.description, B.secondlastname FROM person A LEFT JOIN contact B ON A.id=B.person_id WHERE $con ORDER BY A.id ");

Good Luck,
Kent

Just itemize the fields you want instead of using A.* and B.*:  A.ID, A.firstname ... B.description, B.secondlastname
You do not need to SELECT fields in order to use them in JOIN or WHERE clauses. This will make sure you only get the ID from table A.

You can also specify an alias for the field.  

Select A.ID as PERSON_ID, B.ID as CONTACT_ID...
