I have Three tables in SQL 2012.  They are related in the following scheme below.

tblGoals
GoalID - Primary Key

tblObjectives
GoalID- Foreign Key
ObjectiveID- Primary Key

tblPI
ObjectiveID- Foreign Key
PIID-Primary Key

 If I would like to call all the records between all the tables (ie, Goals, related Objectives, related PI, how would I select them all?

Would it look like this?


Select *
From tblGoals G
Inner Join tblObjective O on G.GoalID = O.GoalID Inner Join ????

You see where I am struggling....

You just about had it.

Select *
From tblGoals G
Inner Join tblObjective O on G.GoalID = O.GoalID
Inner Join tblPI P on O.ObjectiveID = P.ObjectiveID

That should cover it, I believe.

If you want to get more selective you can list the various columns:

select g.GoalID, O.ObjectiveID, P.PIID, etc etc etc
