Sample table : student

Sample table : studentreport

To get 'name', 'title', 'class', 'section' and 'rollid' from table 'student' and 'grade' and 'semister' from table 'studentreport' together after a joining, with following conditions -

1. 'class', 'section' and 'rollid' combination is primary key in 'student' table

2. 'class', 'section' and 'rollid' combination is foreign key in 'studentreport' table which is referencing to the primary key of 'student' table.

3. 'class', 'section' and 'rollid' of 'student' and 'studentreport' must be same.

the following sql statement can be used :

SELECT a.name,a.title,a.class,a.section,
a.rollid,b.grade,b.semester
FROM student a, studentreport b
WHERE a.class=b.class 
AND a.section=b.section
AND a.rollid=b.rollid;
