View as plain text  
Select * from table1 T1, table2 T2, table3 T3, table4 T4, table5 T5,
table6 T6 
Where T1.col=T2.col
 and T2.col=T3.col
 and T3.col=T4.col
 and T4.col=T5.col
 and T5.col=T6.col
 and T1.col=T6.col
[and col='val']

Doesn't this work ? Have you an example ?

Subject: joining six tables by mutual column

Greetings everyone.

Hope someone can give me some pointers here. I have six tables in the 
database and I need to JOIN them on a row that appears in all of the 
tables. How do I do this? I have so far done the normal 'cross-join' 
saying SELECT * FROM table1, table2, table3, table4, table5, table6 
WHERE something = something;

I have also added STRAIGHT_JOIN to force the order but, how do I JOIN 
six tables to/by one column? I have done some google searches as well as

looked at MySQL 2nd edition by Paul DuBois, sorry if I missed something 
here Paul, and so far I have not found an answer. Any help or pointers 
will be appreciated. Thank you.

Kind Regards
