join syntax for table.column
I'm trying to join a couple tables that have the same column name. I want to do something like:
JOIN continents.Name AS continentname ON table1.continents = continents.ID
command denied to user 'username'@'localhost' for table 'Name'
Is this not a possible way of doing my query?

You really don't say what you want from the two tables. This one produces only the set of records that match in both Table1 and name.
Code:SELECT * FROM Table1 INNER JOIN Name ON table1.continents = Name.continents

Why do you think MySQL would lie to you about the error??
That error surely means exactly what it says.
The default user (username@localhost) simply doesn't have permission to access that table in that database.
To find out for sure, just try getting something from that table, without using a JOIN.
You should get the same message.
So now you need to go add username@localhost as an account with permissions to that database and/or table.
