I have 4 different tables that I want to join. The tables are structured with columns as follows:
TableA - aID | nameA | dID TableB - bID | nameB | cID | aID TableC - cID | nameC | date TableD - dID | nameD
Starting with Table A, I understand how to JOIN tables a and c using b, since b has the Primary Keys for those tables. I want to be able to join table TableD on TableA as well. Below is my SQL statement that first joins tables A and B, then joins that to C:
SELECT TableA.*, TableB.*, TableC.* FROM (TableB INNER JOIN TableA ON TableB.aID= TableA.aID) INNER JOIN TableC ON(TableB.cID= Tablec.cID) WHERE (DATE(TableC.date)=date(now()))
When I attempt to add another join, to include D, I get an error that ‘TableD’ is unknown:
SELECT TableA.*, TableB.*, TableC.*, TableD.* FROM (TableB INNER JOIN TableA ON TableB.aID= TableA.aID) INNER JOIN TableC ON(TableB.cID= Tablec.cID) INNER JOIN TableA ta ON(ta.dID= TableD.dID) WHERE (DATE(TableC.date)=date(now()))
Thank you for visiting the Q&A section on Magenaut. Please note that all the answers may not help you solve the issue immediately. So please treat them as advisements. If you found the post helpful (or not), leave a comment & I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
You want something more like this:
SELECT TableA.*, TableB.*, TableC.*, TableD.* FROM TableA JOIN TableB ON TableB.aID = TableA.aID JOIN TableC ON TableC.cID = TableB.cID JOIN TableD ON TableD.dID = TableA.dID WHERE DATE(TableC.date)=date(now())
In your example, you are not actually including
TableD. All you have to do is perform another join just like you have done before.
A note: you will notice that I removed many of your parentheses, as they really are not necessary in most of the cases you had them, and only add confusion when trying to read the code. Proper nesting is the best way to make your code readable and separated out.
SELECT a.nameA, /* TableA.nameA */ d.nameD /* TableD.nameD */ FROM TableA a INNER JOIN TableB b on b.aID = a.aID INNER JOIN TableC c on c.cID = b.cID INNER JOIN TableD d on d.dID = a.dID WHERE DATE(c.`date`) = CURDATE()
You have not joined TableD, merely selected the TableD FIELD (
dID) from one of the tables.
