Is this what you are looking for?


Your question does not tell us a lot about what you are trying.  Filter in app; filter from the Dropbox?

to find out, if the sql syntax is correct, right click onto the join block and select "Do it"
then provide another screenshot including the Do it result and a screenshot of your error message
did you already do the Pizza Party tutorial?

this looks fine... it is important to not forget spaces where necessary, but everyting looks fine...
now what is your error message?
I'm assuming, that the Number columns is defined as number and not text?
A screenshot could help to find the problem easier...

please keep the discussion in the forum! 
first do the Pizza Party tutorial to learn how everything works!
and then if you still have problems, provide
1. a screenshot of your relevant blocks
2. a screenshot of your error message
Thank you.

to find out, if the sql statement is correct, right click onto the join block of the sql statement and select do it then post a screenshot incl. the Do It result...
however if it works, currently you will get this error: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!category-topic/mitappinventortest/dkEZZJ7PIx0

ok, let's understand, what the error message says: parse error near "of"
which means, spaces in column names in queries are not permitted, you have to quotify them like this
... WHERE 'Type of Fixture'='Football'
