Avoid synthetic keys

Hi.

I have a problem with the following scheme:


Table A

ERPOthers
X
Y

Table B

ITEMOthers
A
B

Table C

ERPITEMOthers
XA
XB

Table D

ERPITEMOthers
YB
XA

By making the load several synthetic keys are produced , because there are two tables with  two fields with the same name, which are related to Tables A and B.

C and D are  differents tables between them.


What can i do  to fix  the problem and  keep the idea of ​​the scheme ?

a greeting

May be like this:

Table1:

LOAD ERP,

    Others as Others1

FROM

[https://community.qlik.com/thread/216315]

(html, codepage is 1252, embedded labels, table is @1);

Table2:

LOAD ITEM,

    Others as Others2

FROM

[https://community.qlik.com/thread/216315]

(html, codepage is 1252, embedded labels, table is @2);

Table3:

LOAD AutoNumber(ERP & ITEM) as Key,

    Others as Others3

FROM

[https://community.qlik.com/thread/216315]

(html, codepage is 1252, embedded labels, table is @3);

Table4:

LOAD AutoNumber(ERP & ITEM) as Key,

  ERP,

    ITEM,

    Others as Others4

FROM

[https://community.qlik.com/thread/216315]

(html, codepage is 1252, embedded labels, table is @4);

It's hard to give any advice without knowing what you want to model and if all fields with the same name describe an entity with the same role or a different role.

Have a look at

Circular References

Have you also considered just concatenating Table C and Table D?
