JOIN with more than one result

Recommended Posts

Hello,

My database is organized in two tables, called content and additional_info. The structure is as followed:

content

ID | title   | text
----------------------
1  | Title A | Text A
2  | Title B | Text B

additional_info

ID | idContent | info
-----------------------
1  | 1         | Info A1
1  | 1         | Info A2
1  | 2         | Info B1
1  | 2         | Info B2

Now I like to show my users a HTML table such as

Result (desired):

Title   | Information
---------------------------
Title A | Info A1, Info A2
Title B | Info B1, Info B2

Selecting the data with a JOIN_

SELECT
    c.title,
    i.info
FROM
    Content c
JOIN
    additional_info a ON a.idContent = c.ID

returns a table with four rows:

Title   | Information
----------------------
Title A | Info A1
Title A | Info A2
Title B | Info B1
Title B | Info B2

My current solution is to check the value of the title. If there is no chance, I add the information, if there is a change, I print the new title in a new row (<tr>). But maybe there is also a more dynamic way or a solution “imploding” the information….?

Thank you,

Simon
