hi,

best greetings to Linz!

do you know Christian Redl? he also works for Racon.

what i got so far (it's no homework, but a real problem at work)

SELECT DISTINCT c.id, c.name
FROM c, r
WHERE ((c.id = r.ref_c_id) AND (r.ref_m_id IN (2,3));

actual result:

1, C1  (has M1, M2, M3)
2, C2  (has M2, M3)
3, C3  (has M3, M4, M5)

desired result:
1, C1
2, C2

i think there should be a elegant and simple solution in one sql statement.

best regards + thanks for your help,

   Georg Gruber.
