Querying multiple tables from the console

So, I’m just trying to understand the console a bit better :slight_smile:

I’m able to get some decent output through the console, but it’s a bit
short of what I want, which is to put the “calls” array together with
the
“logins” array and output the results as the SQL below does, something
like:

calls.comment calls.created_at logins.login

start work 2008-02-08 15:12:13 0123
start call 2008-02-08 15:12:13 0123
start break 2008-02-08 15:12:13 0123

How do you put it all together from the console? I can print out the
first two columns together, or print the third column, but cannot put
them together :frowning:

If the relationships are in place…
calls=Call.find(:all, :conditions => {:login_id => 1},:include
=> :logins)
calls.each {|call| puts call.comment + “\t” + call.created_at.to_s +
“\t” + call.login.to_s}

w/o knowing more about the schema, that’s all i can really help with

I believe that the relationships are in place and that the schema is
compatible:

Sorry, just a minor tweak and it’s all good :slight_smile:

That’s very cool, I’m still poking it, but that is very, very,
interesting!
