Thread:
Lists: pgsql-phppgsql-sql
As a person with the same problem, I would love to know how to do this.
The concept escapes me, but maybe these lists could help with novice
sqlers.

If there are multiple authors per publication (my case), and each author
needs to be selected and displayed, how can that be done via a join?

One would need to query for all authors with each publication.

I'm cross-posting this, because it seems relevant on both ends.

Thanks!
