Yes i know the person who created the table needs shooting but the table is built and fed by a 3rd party product. I need to link several other tables to the varchar field. Anyone know how to get table2 to use the index for the join??

engine = MyISAM
version = 4.1.22

table1 id = INT(11)
table2 mdata= VARCHAR(30)

both tables have indexes on these fields and mdata will only ever contain an integer
