I am not sure of the question you are asking can you be a little bit more descriptive.

An Appointment from a user perspective might read...

id                    2132
Contract        West Coast
Customer      Mr Simon D Jenkins              
Location        249a Hatton Street, Newtown, York, YO23 8YE
Task               Install new alarm system
Engineer       Mr John Reed

Yet the Appointment table is structured as in my initial post, where each column with an Id suffix joins with a related table that holds the user readable data. eg. Appointment.CustomerId links to Customer.CustomerId where Customer has .CustomerId, .Saluation, .Forname, .Initial, .Surname etc.

Hi Dodsworth;

See if this gives you what you are looking for.

Dim db = New DataContext()

Dim results = From a In db.Appointment _
              Join c In db.Customer On a.CustomerId Equals c.CustomerId _
              Select a, c 

Open in new window

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Do I just tag the other joins on like..
Dim db = New DataContext()

Dim results = From a In db.Appointment _
              Join c In db.Customer On a.CustomerId Equals c.CustomerId _
              Join t In db.Task On a.TaskId Equals t.TaskId _
Select a, c, t  

Open in new window

As long as a.TaskId is a column in Appointment and t.TaskId is a column in Task then yes.
