I have two tables. One table is called Employees and one is called Teams.

In the Employee table I have the following columns (Name, StartDate, Position, TeamID)
In the Teams table I have the following columns (URL, Active, TeamID)

I want to select Name, StartDate, and Position from the Employee table
as well as
URL, and Active from the Teams table
Where the ID is the same

For example...
Employee record: Mike Smith | 1/1/1980 | Comptroller | 55
Teams record: www.google.com | Yes | 55

would display this in the result:

Mike Smith 1/1/1980 Comptroller www.google.com Yes

How do I do this?

You have to use Join

select Name, StartDate, Position, URL, Active  from Employee 
INNER JOIN Teams ON Employee .TeamID = Teams.TeamID
