@dalton_moen In Magento, you can join multiple tables in a database query using the join method. Here is an example:

1
2
3
4
5
6
$collection = Mage::getModel('module/model')->getCollection();
$collection->getSelect()
    ->join(
        array('table_alias' => 'table_name'),
        'main_table.field_name = table_alias.field_name'
    );

The join method takes two arguments: the first argument is an array that specifies the alias and the name of the table to join, and the second argument is the join condition that specifies how the tables should be joined. In the example above, the join method is called on the Select object of the collection, which adds the specified join to the query. Keep in mind that the exact syntax for joining tables in Magento may vary depending on the version of Magento you are using. It's always a good idea to consult the Magento documentation for the specific version you are using to ensure you are using the correct syntax.

To join multiple tables in Magento, you can use the join() method of the collection object. Here is the basic syntax to join multiple tables:

$collection = Mage::getModel('your_module/model')->getCollection()
    ->addFieldToSelect('*')
    ->join(
        'table_name',
        'main_table.column_name = table_name.column_name',
        array('column_name1' => 'table_name.column_name1', 'column_name2' => 'table_name.column_name2')
    )
    ->join(
        'another_table_name',
        'main_table.column_name = another_table_name.column_name',
        array('column_name3' => 'another_table_name.column_name3', 'column_name4' => 'another_table_name.column_name4')
    );

foreach ($collection as $item) {
    // Access joined table values using $item object
    $column1 = $item->getColumn_name1();
    $column2 = $item->getColumn_name2();
    $column3 = $item->getColumn_name3();
    $column4 = $item->getColumn_name4();
}


In this example, your_module/model should be replaced with your own module and model names. table_name and another_table_name refer to the names of the tables you want to join. column_name should be replaced with the column names on which the join is based. The third argument of the join() method is an array that maps the columns of the joined table to their corresponding names in the result collection.


You can add more join() calls to join additional tables in a similar manner.
