Pull from Two Tables

Pull from Two Tables

Pull from Two Tables

I have two tables as follows:



"SELECT customers.customernum, customername, ordernum FROM customers, orders WHERE partnum=123 and customers.customernum=orders.customernum"

I'm trying to pull a recordset of all customers that ordered part #123.  The problem is that if a customer ordered three parts, one of which was #123, it's going to pull three records (one record for each .  All I want is the single order number for the order that contains this part number.

I would think this would be an easy thing to do, but I'm all out of ideas.

RE: Pull from Two Tables

Use the keyword distinct to get rid of duplicates in your output.


SELECT DISTINCT customers.customernum, customername, ordernum FROM customers, orders WHERE partnum=123 and customers.customernum=orders.customernum

RE: Pull from Two Tables

DISTINCT!!!  That's it!  Thank you.
