Default SQL Table Joins

i got 3 tables in my dvd database..

[u]dvd </u>



now when i run a query like...

SELECT actor.Actor, dvd.Title, dvd.year
FROM dvd INNER JOIN (actor INNER JOIN movies ON actor.actorID=movies.ActorID) ON dvd.movieID=movies.movieID
WHERE dvd.title='heat';

i get the result...

Robert DeNiro Heat 2000
Al Pacino Heat 2000

when what i really want is.....

Heat 2000 Robert DeNiro Al Pacino

how do i go about that?..

do i use a DISTINCT command?.. i guess i cant really as they're not duplicate records... if i cant change that in SQL can i display it that way somehow in ASP?...

In ASP you can pretty much display your results any way you wish

Let's say you got something like this...

'This is all your DB stuff
SQL = "SELECT * FROM Query_movie WHERE title ='Heat'"
SET Rs = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
Rs.Open SQL, objConn

'Here goes what you see on screen
Response.Write(Rs("title") & " " & Rs("year"))
  Response.Write(" " & Rs("actor"))
That will stick them all in a line.

Hope this helps!
