Query 2 tables, limit results of 1 table. How?
First time I've ever done anything like querying 2 tables at a time, and I'm struggling. I have the following query
SELECT categories.id, categories.listing, categories.catname, subcategories.catid, subcategories.subcat, subcategories.listings, subcategories.url FROM categories LEFT JOIN subcategories ON categories.id=subcategories.catid ORDER BY categories.catname,subcategories.subcat ASC

Two separate queries using a UNION ALL to join the queries.

you may prefer to write the query in that sort of format but you can save typing time by using an 'alias'
SELECT c.id, c.listing, c.catname, s.catid, s.subcat, s.listings, s.url FROM categories AS c LEFT JOIN subcategories AS s ON c.id=s.catid ORDER BY c.catname,s.subcat ASC
SELECT c.id , c.listing , c.catname , s.catid , s.subcat , s.listings , s.url FROM categories AS c LEFT JOIN subcategories AS s ON c.id=s.catid ORDER BY c.catname,s.subcat ASC

Cheers for that, didn't know about the alias thing
