I need to link data from a table to another table. I'm not sure how to do this. I have never link a table to another table. Anyone can help me? Or maybe can give me examples or sample codes? Thanks =)

What do you mean? You need to select data from 2 different tables, or insert data into 2 different tables? Can you provide table definitions with a plain English explanation? What operating system are you working on (iOS/Windows/Mac OS/Android...?)? – Phil Aug 3 '12 at 2:33
I down-voted this question since it does not provide a clear explanation of what you are attempting to do. – Max Vernon Sep 5 '12 at 20:17

Here is an idea that seems to work. Generally speaking though, you can do this like this:


table_key_in_table1 (linked to table1)

And so on.
