      Guidelines and Netiquette   03/28/2017

      Posting Problems:   Having problems posting your topic? Read through this: To join, you agree to our terms and conditions and fill out and submit a registration form. An activation email will be sent to your email adress, so you'll need to verify your account. After that the account has to be validated by one of the moderators. This will mean that it can take up to a day to be activated. A couple of things to remember to ensure approval: Don't use an email address in one of those $2 four character .com domains eg. xyds.com. These will be deleted and the domain added to the banned list. Don't use an email address that is within a domain with a bad reputation for spam. A Google search is run on every email address and email domain. Don't sign up with an email address that doesn't exist, doesn't work or requires the sender to answer a quiz before their email can get to you. Put your country and or state and city in the signup form. Blank forms will go to the botton of the "to do" list. And make sure that your email address and your country match, saying you're from Alabama and using a .ru email address is not going to get you activated. After a membership is activated the first few posts will be monitored. Posting spam or unapproved topics described in the agreement results in an immediate ban. The email provider and the IP addresses associated with the account will be banned and all posts will be deleted. These strict measures have been deemed necessary to hinder spam. Sorry for any inconvenience this causes, but it's not liable to change.

Therefore, we'd like to alert you as to what to do when you have found any of the aforementioned annoying messages: it. Immediately. Give a clear reason, please, if the advertising is not evident. DO NOT POST! Report, let the post stay as is, and we will get to it, meanwhile if you continue to post as normal in the other threads, it won't be on the top so long. Refrain from PMing the member. This won't help at all, as they are most likely spambots anyway. Thank you.       Images in signatures:   After thinking of users on dial-up, we have decided to enforce the following rules regarding signatures. Please pay heed to them. Respecting these rules is respecting the members on this forum with dial-up. Signature rules: No animated images AT ALL. No matter the amount of animation. Maximum image widthxheight: 300x150 Maximum image (file) size: 15kb Use calm colors. Do not use highly contrasting images in your signature, as this can get really annoying when seeing several posts from one member in the same thread. The same prohibited content goes for images as for posts. Lastly, use common sense. No lengthy signatures please. Save us some scrolling. Thank you.       Links in signatures:   Please understand that w3schools.com only exists because of voluntary work and is barely supported by the advertising littered throughout the tutorials and the forum. So, please, stop advertising other sites. DO not post links that drive traffic away from the w3schools domain - especially to a site that offers similar if not identical information. Please help support the site by keeping individuals on it. Thank you. Here are some guidelines as to what you can put in your signature: w3schools links --> allowed w3.org links --> allowed browser links --> allowed html editor links --> allowed personal sites --> allowed tutorial sites competing with w3schools --> NOT allowed sites completely irrelevant to webprogramming and this forum --> NOT allowed   Thanks for understanding, and for taking the time to read this. ~W3Schools Modstaff~

mysql join from 2 different databases

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have a question about join or inner join; not sure in what way it should be used.

I now use 2 queries in 2 different databases (made in phpmyadmin).

    SELECT `title` FROM `writers` WHERE id ='qwert58efedd1979f';

    SELECT `name`, `lastname`, `str`, `nr`,` place` FROM `client` WHERE id ='qwert58efedd1979f';

I would like to make one mysql query and use join to search in 2 tables in 2 different databases.

Can anyone tell how mysql does this?

Generally I only join tables in the same database, it's been a long time since I had to join tables from two different databases, but prefixing the table names with the database name and a dot should work.

SELECT `w`.`title`, `c`.`name`, `c`.`lastname`, `c`.`str`, `c`.`nr`, `c`.`place`
FROM `database1`.`client` AS c
JOIN `database2`.`writers` AS w ON w.`id` = `c`.`id`
WHERE `c`.`id` = 'qwert58efedd1979f'

WHERE `c`.`id` = 'qwert58efedd1979f'

 

Its not clear what is meant with the w and the c. Are this the tables?

And what is client then in database1.client or writers in database2.writers? Is that also a table?

"c" and "w" are alias for the tables. You use the AS keyword to shorten the table name so that you don't have to type such a long name so many times.

"client" and "writers" are the two tables from your previous post. I don't know the name of the databases that they are in, so I just used "database1" and "database2" as example names.

I get an error message (error message 1054) : unknown column w.title in field list.

What should I do to open 2 databases?

I work now in the mysql console, but I'm not sure wether it is possible or not.

It sounds like there's no field called `title` in your `writers` table.

I don't know anything about your database structure, so all I can do is make guesses based on what little information you provided here.

Is it necessary to open the 2 different databases or not? How is this done in 1) phpmyadmin, 2) mysql console, 3) php script?

with select database() in the console only 1 database is shown.

As long as your MySQL user has access to both databases, you can run queries on one or both of them.  You don't have to "open" them, once you connect to the server you can either select a default database, or just include the database name in all of your queries.

sorry, I have not been able to solve it already.

i got results and the output was that related to 3 different fields in table one; the record in table 2 was printed 3 times. When I added a record to table 2 this one was also 3 times printed so I bascially got six results.

Is it possible anyway to have 1 columns like a unique number (unique_nr) in both tables and then as a result have f.i. multiple records for table 1 and only 1 for table 2?

And is JOIN the right query or should I use something different.

or (as I'm getting a bit impatient) should I just select the unique number first in table 2 and then use a second separate query to find the record values of table 1?

Is it not this MySQL clause that insures that the records in the two databases match?  

ON w.`id` = `c`.`id`

For, if the id's properly matched there would be no duplication in the joined result, unless, of course, there were duplication in both databases.
