How can I lookup the 'dept_name' each 'parent_order_id'
when performing a select query?
Will I need to use to use two select queries?

tbl_dept
--------------------------------------
int PK NOT NULL dept_id
int NULL parent_dept_id
char (25) NOT NULL dept_name
char (25) NOT NULL dept_location
--------------------------------------

Regards,
Dave

Dave,
Where is parent order id? In another table? If so, you can do a join.
