It's hard to know how to answer this one.
Your code tells me very little and your English is understandably poor.
I can't even tell how you're expecting this to work.
Perhaps some indication of the sort of data you're working with may assist.
Please post the metadata for your tables [User] & [PermissionUser].

Here is an example of how to post table MetaData :
Table Name=tblStudent
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Field; Type; IndexInfo
  2. StudentID; AutoNumber; PK
  3. Family; String; FK
  4. Name; String
  5. University; String; FK
  6. Mark; Numeric
  7. LastAttendance; Date/Time
Please try to post it correctly as per the example. This is not language based so there would be no good excuse for failing to provide this data correctly. If there is anything about this you don't understand just ask.
