I'm struggling to figure out how to retrieve data from fields in a custom content type. I'm trying to use SQL with multiple joins, but I can't get it to work .... I think there must be a better way - can you point me anywhere?

Probably the simplest route

Probably the simplest route is to do a node_load($nid) to fully load the node and pick out what you need from there. I'm sure you've tried it already, but you could also try using the Views module to grab the specific columns you need. You of course could use a number of JOINs to get the content you'd like, and though it's not working for you now, you'd eventually come up with something that did.

Let me know if that points you in the right direction.
