Try this way:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  2. SELECT * FROM tablea A,(SELECT DISTINCT column3 FROM tablec) C WHERE EXISTS (SELECT 1 FROM B WHERE B.column1 = A.column1 AND 
  3. B.column2 LIKE C.column3||%);

I learned MySQL last year without putting it into action; that is why I face trouble in formulating my queries. Were it a test, then you would have passed it, because your queries did help me solve my problem. I'll turn to MySQL doc after getting through this pressing project. Thanks a lot Roger!

These tables are: tblPermitMain tblApplicant tblContractor tblEngineer
