Embedded queries??


Recommended Posts

I have a database with the following two tables:


1. job

2. company


Each job entry has its own info as well as a job_comp_id column that corresponds to a a comp_id column in the company db table.


This works fine. No problems separating info and getting that info into the db.


The most simple way I can explain my issue is as follows: Within a while loop that is working its way through my first $row array (generated from $result = mysql_query($sql)), how can I query a different table? Kind of like 'embedded queries'.


I totally understand why I separated the companies from the jobs. However, now it is a pain in the butt trying to work with both tables in one page.

Just query it as you would any other time.


Quick example:

while ($row = mysql_fetch_row($result)) {
$result2 = mysql_query("SELECT blah FROM company WHERE id=$row[4]");
echo mysql_result($result2,0);


Are you sure you don't need a JOIN instead?
