can you please put in code you have already worked on?  This may become easier to answer if we know what we are dealing with.  Thanks.

yes.  but using the asterik(*) provides an issue of names identical in both tables.
in order to fetch across the resulting dataset, you will be sucked into a fully qualified column name (ie. networking.column1 and member.column1).  you might want to qualify those names first (ie. netcol1 and memcol1) and use individual columns names instead of the asterik(*).
