names from id results

i have a query that returns successful results getting the distinct id from a enquireies table as follows:
select DISTINCT enq.enqid, enq.empid
from enquiry enq
inner join edetails b
on enq.enqid = b.enqid this gets me the enqid associated with the rows but i want to display names from employee table using results on empid from above query. help me please.
Add another join with the employee table. If empid on the enquiry table allows nulls, make it a left join (assuming you’re mentioning the enquire table first) and just note that you might get nulls on the employee name column.
adrian thanks for the suggstion. im new to joins is it possible to write query by you.

Your query already has a join, it should not not be that difficult to add another one.[<img src=’/community/emoticons/emotion-5.gif’ alt=’;)‘ />]
