Hi all!

I have a mysql table with contacts.

In this table I have a field called id_city and city_name.

I have another table called states where I have id_state, state_name and, related to it, all the id_city that are in that state.

I would like to prepare a query that shows me all the contacts living in all the city in a state using simply the state name...

How can I achieve this?

I think I did it!
I just needed a subquery:

SELECT allthefieldsyouneed
FROM youtable
where id_city = (select id_city from states where state_name = 'yourstatename')

Thanks anyway :)
