Looping through two tables to produce a list?
Hello everyone, I am looking to use two tables within a query and output the results in php.
I have one table which holds details about a group and is called 'groups' with these columns
I have another table called 'people' who belong to these groups with these columns
What I'm looking to do is produce a list in php where I can loop through all the 'groups' and output each heading, then directly underneath that heading output all the their_name that are part of that particular group from the 'people' table.
Can anyone help here please. At the moment with my scenario I can't even think of the right terms to use a search engine for to find some similar scenarios which would help me, so even anything like that would be helpful. Thank you

Join and sort. Display is where it can get tricky since you don't really describe what you want the output to look like.
$sql = "SELECT t1.their_name, t2.heading, t2.group_id FROM table1 t1 INNER JOIN table2 t2 ON t2.group_id = t1.group_id ORDER BY t2.group_id ASC";
if ($qry = mysql_query($sql))
$iLastGroup = 0;
while($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($qry))
if ($iLastGroup != $row['group_id'])
if ($iLastGroup > 0)
$iLastGroup = $row['group_id'];
