I didn't make it!
If i have a table of users and a table of threads, in the table of threads i have field for "created_by_user_id" and also a field for "lastupdated_by_user_id". In the tb_users table i have fields for user_id and user_name
I want to then run a query to show all rows in the tb_threads table and automatically replace the IDs in created_by and updated_by with the relevent usernames from the tb_users table.
In an SQL query I can pull through the actual name of the user who created the thread by doing something like

how can i make it look up the user_name independantly for created_by and updated_by
There will be another step to what I need once I have the answer to this. In fact, the answer to this might apply to my other problem but I'll wait and see.[/COLOR]
