```

Sample Solution:

``````-- This query selects all columns ('*') from the 'customer' table (aliased as 'a') and the 'orders' table (aliased as 'b').
-- It retrieves data where the 'customer_id' column in the 'a' table (customer) matches the 'customer_id' column in the 'b' table (orders),
-- and the 'ord_date' column in the 'b' table is equal to '2012-10-05'.
SELECT *
-- Specifies the tables from which to retrieve the data (in this case, 'customer' aliased as 'a' and 'orders' aliased as 'b').
FROM customer a, orders b
-- Specifies the conditions for joining the tables and filtering the data.
WHERE a.customer_id = b.customer_id
AND b.ord_date = '2012-10-05';
``````

Output of the Query:

```customer_id	cust_name	city		grade	salesman_id	ord_no	purch_amt	ord_date	customer_id	salesman_id
3002		Nick Rimando	New York	100	5001		70002	65.26		2012-10-05	3002		5001
3005		Graham Zusi	California	200	5002		70001	150.50		2012-10-05	3005		5002
```

Code Explanation:

The said query in SQL that performs a join between two tables: 'customer' and 'orders'. It returns all columns (*) from both tables where the customer_id column in table 'customer' matches the customer_id column in table 'orders' and the ord_date in table 'orders' is equal to '2012-10-05'.
