I am trying to build a query that gives me the following:

item name table name
code table1
accountid table1
accountid2 table2
balance table3

I want to select one distinct code with one accountid, something like this:

code accountid accountid2 balance
codea 1 111 50
codeb 2 222 51
codec 3 333 52
coded 4 444 53

I have the results via individual queries, then adding the union clause - but this now results in one massive query and I suspect it doesn't need to be like that.

Hopefully that's enough info, would appreciate any help/ tips. If you need more pls advise.

without the tables, data and required output you are not going to get much help. Maybe it's clear to others but I can't understand what you start with nor what you want.
