Default inner join problem

Hi there,

I have a problem with the syntax for a multi-table inner join which I hope someone can help me with.

My SQL statement looks like this....
"SELECT orgs.documentref, mainser.name, ser.name, orgs.datein, serorgs.serid, orgs.title, orgs.shortdesc, orgs.webaddress, serorgs.webaddress, orgs.hits, orgs.webprefix, serorgs.webprefix, serorgs.title, serorgs.shortdesc, serorgs.hits, serorgs.datein, serorgs.serorgid, orgs.addressline1, orgs.addressline2, orgs.towncity, orgs.county, orgs.postcode, serorgs.supptelno, serorgs.suppemail, serorgser.serorgserid, serorgser.serorgid, serorgser.serid, serorgser.documentref, * FROM ((serorgser INNER JOIN orgs ON serorgser.documentref = orgs.documentref) INNER JOIN serorgs ON serorgser.serorgid = serorg.serorgid) ((INNER JOIN ser ON serorgser.serid = ser.serid) INNER JOIN mainser ON ser.mainserid = mainser.serid) WHERE (((orgs.active)=True)) ORDER BY mainser.name, serorgser.serid, serorgser.documentref, serorgs.title;

(sorry for the mouthfull of code!)
Basically I want to return all records from the SERORGSER table, and get related values from the ORGS table(1 record will be returned), SERORGS table(1 record will be returned), SER Table(1 record will be returned), & get values from the MAINSER table(1 record will be returned) based on the record found from the SER table.
We will exclude records where the value of the "orgs.active" field =True.

Hope this is clear !!
Many thanks for your help.

What problems are you having with this .. the only thing I can see is

quote:We will exclude records where the value of the "orgs.active" field =True
this will include records with orgs.active = true. I would change the code to
WHERE (((orgs.active)<>True))
