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.

SELECT * FROM member
LEFT JOIN networking
ON member.networkingID=networking.ID
WHERE member.ID=2

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(*).
