Hi all,

I have a question:

table 1 is:

number | name
1 | a
2 | b
3 | c

table 2 is:
number | code
1 | abc
1 | def
3 | zui

as you see, in table 2 "number" is not unique and can have double entrys

now I want to join these tables:
1.) i dont want any double "number"
2.) I only want entrys which are mentione in table 2

so as the result I want:

number | name
1 | a
3 | c

How has the join to look like?

Or if there is no working join, how could I delete all entrys in table 2 where there are several "number" (but one entry)

Hope everything is clear.

Thanks for your help and kind regards,

You can write the query a few different ways - for example:
SELECT number, name
FROM Table1 a 
WHERE EXISTS (SELECT * FROM Table2 b WHERE b.number = a.number);
