I have a select statement as follows:

select table_name, table_row_id from Table_Link

That produces:

Organization, 1
Organization, 2
Organization, 3
Country, 1
Country, 2


What I need to do is select the data from the relevant table and row_id in the same step, producing something similar to this pseudo-code:

Organization, 1, (select name from organization table where row_id = 1)
Organization, 2, (select name from organization table where row_id = 2)
Organization, 3, (select name from organization table where row_id = 3)
Country, 1, (select name from country table where row_id = 1)
Country, 2, (select name from country table where row_id = 2)

So the second half of the sql statement depends on the values that the first half retrieves...

hope this makes sense, thanks for any help :)

will this help?

select table_name, table_row_id, '(select name from' + table_name + ' where row_id = ' + table_row_id + ')'
from Table_Link

Go with the flow & have fun! Else fight the flow
