        invoice.invoiceid, invoice.invoicedate, invoice.total,
        track.name, invoiceline.unitprice, invoiceline.quantity
    </columns>
    <from table='invoice'>
        <join table='invoiceline'>
            <on>invoice.invoiceID = invoiceline.invoiceID</on>
            <join table='track'>
                <on>invoiceline.trackid = track.trackid</on>

        track.name, invoiceline.unitprice, invoiceline.quantity
    </columns>
    <from table='invoice'>
        <join table='invoiceline'>
            <on>invoice.invoiceID = invoiceline.invoiceID</on>
            <join table='track'>
                <on>invoiceline.trackid = track.trackid</on>
            </join>            
        </join>
    </from>
    <where>
    	invoice.invoicedate BETWEEN $SDATE AND $EDATE
    </where>
