Ive got a look up table and i want it to display text on the table when viewing it instead of just the ID number, how would i do that? so for example if
1 = Hello
2 = Bye

it would display "Hello" instead of "1"

Welcome to the forum.
Please read OraFAQ Forum Guide and How to use [code] tags and make your code easier to read.

- Select the text column instead of the id column.
- Join the look up table with the other one that gives you the id
- ...

With any SQL question, Post a working Test case: create table and insert statements along with the result you want with these data then we will be able work with your table and data. Explain with words and sentences the rules that lead to this result.

Regards
Michel

As you said that it is the Apex question: where do you want to do that? Is it, perhaps, a list of values? If so, note that its query requires exactly 2 columns: a DISPLAY and a RETURN value. So, it might look like
select title v_disp, id v_ret from your_table

Otherwise & generally speaking, follow Michel's advice.
