Hi, i need to extract info and display it. The only thing is i have 2 tables. As you can see below this code works when extracting info from one table.

$query_food = "SELECT * FROM stock WHERE
tariff='$_POST[interest]' AND
prodDesc = 'paygo' ORDER BY tariff";
$result = mysql_query($query_food,$connect)
or die ("query_food: ".mysql_error($connect));

This works as when the user selects a certain 'tariff' the above code selects the correct products. However i also want to do a query using the manufacturer name. But the 'maufacturer' is stated in another table called stock_item. (if i therefore swap 'manufacturer' for 'tarrif' in the above code it wont work as 'manufacturer' is in a different table). So how do i do this?? The tables i have used are:

stock(stockID, colour, modelnum, tariff, pic)
stock_item(modelnum, manufacturer)

Don't double-post. Read the forum guidelines.
If you are still using mysql_ functions, STOP! Use mysqli_ or PDO. The longer you leave it the more you will have to rewrite.
