I am trying to figure out how to display a field in a joined table, but documentation isn't that great or obvious.

I have my base custom table with a tid field that ties to the taxonomy_term_data table. I want to display the term name, based upon my tid field. How to I specify that name field for display in my view?

You'll need to add a relationship to that table, then add the field from that table to your view.

  • I'm creating the view programmatically. I call views_embed_view() to render it.

  • It's the same process with views_embed_view, but done programmatically with the views api. Jan 14, 2013 at 21:41
