I hope you can help me with this

I have this two querys
query 1
select field1 from table1 where field1 = 'a'

Open in new window


query 2
select field2 from table where field2 = 'a'

Open in new window


I need to present to my user field1 and field2 as a one table

I was trying to use a union
select field1 from table1 where field1 = 'a'
union all
select field1 from table1 where field1 = 'a'

Open in new window


but mysql show me the result in a single column and I need it in two, for example:
-------------------------------------------------------------
|   field 1                       |       field 2                |
|-----------------------------------------------------------|
|  results of field 1      |  results of field2     |
-------------------------------------------------------------

is it possible to do it like that???

Select Query1.someCommonField, Query1.field1, Query2.field2
From
(
Select field1, someCommonfield1 as "Common" from table1 where field1 ='a'
) as Query1
inner join
(
Select field2, someCommonField2 as "Common" from table2 where field2='a'
) as Query2
On Query1.Common = Query2.Common
Order By Query1.field1

Open in new window

Realise that the SQL server NEEDS to know how the information from the two fields relate to one another in order to match up the two values.
You, as a human being and familiar with the data, can match the two up.  How are you doing that?  How can you express it in clear language?
Once you can do that, you can fix the query above to meet your needs, even if the relationship is complex.
