Next time be more specific in your question....Now update your table schema and query that you used to get the record

Hi Nikolas,

Here is the query you can make use of
SELECT [acussfrm.report_no], 
       [secfrm.department_name], --Here department name is replaced 
FROM   [accusationform] AS acussfrm, 
       [secondform] AS secfrm -- Rename secondform to your second table name
WHERE  [acussfrm.department_id] = [secfrm.department_id] --Here is the condition that reads the common data from two tables with having department_id as common id.

Hope this helps you a bit.

what do you get in department.description? i think you comparing varchar with int value in where condition.. rectify it and it will work as expected
