what i want is to write a sql select query which would contain agn values from Inward table,item_name values from item_master table,rack_name values from store_master table,store_no values from store_master table and no_of_bundle values from Inward table.

I myself have written sql query using little knowledge of sql queries and i get partial output. Query given below:
select i.no_of_bundle,sm.rack_name,sr.store_no,sr.in_out_type,i.agn,it.item_name from inward i,store_master sm,stock_register sr,item_master it where sm.status=true and sr.in_out_id=i.agn and sr.status=true and sm.store_no=sr.store_no and i.deleted_status=false

i know that i am in correct direction in achieving my required query. I think i must add or modify my sql query in Where clause but dont know how. Can anyone tell me what should be added or modified in my sql query. Can anyone help me please. Any help or guidance in solving getting the required sql query would be greatly appreciated.

Why do not you try using joins. The result will be a one table.

Well tell me how to use joins in my above query because i tried it before(i have used inner join) and i got error and was unable to fix it so i changed my query to the above query. Reply please how to apply joins correctly in my above query?
