SQL is an accepted topic, so I imagine that a good scenario is to isolate the actual problem you're trying to address, and frame the question around that instead of just "make this work". This should make it acceptable. Make sure to include your current SQL query as a code block and explain what you've tried and what is failing.
By focusing on the problem that is trying to be solved, you help other users that have the same concern to find the solution, even if they don't have the same query structure that you specifically wrote. And, even as you think about the rephrasing, you may even find an existing question that solves the same problem.
I don't like the title, but so long as their is a technical/code/syntax type of question involved, yep...
If the title is really what the question is, it'll be downvoted and closed. In general, the
I think the question is:
Has the user asked something like: "I have three tables in a database that look like
Or was it something like: "
So I guess what I'm saying is, the rules for SQL are pretty much the same as any other language.
