Join not recognizing Key field

Hi all,

I have a fact table that I load a (Sample 0.25) in a resident table. in this SAMPLE TABLE I did some calculation and now I would like to apply the results back to the fact again. So I tried to join the SAMPLE TABLE in the fact but I get 2 rows per key field. One original and other with the results.

What I would like to have is to The FACT table with the results.

Does anyone knows the reason for not recognizing a key field?

Thanks.

Re: Join not recognizing Key field

Thanks  Sunny!

I was trying to join with multiple fields in common. Thats why I was having two lines per S/N. Now I changed the filed's name and did an IF CLAUSE replacing ZERO values by those in the fields renamed.

All good now.

Would you be able to share the code?

Yes!

PERCENTAGES

LOAD REGION,

     NEW_RATE

FROM $(vReload)\PERCENTAGES.qvd  (qvd);

//loading table with results

For a = 0 to NoOfRows('PERCENTAGES_NEW')-1

  let vPERCENTAGE_NEW = replace((peek('NEW_RATE ',a,'PERCENTAGES'))/100,',','.');

  let vPER_REG_N = peek('REGION',a,'PERCENTAGES');

  //STD percentage

  if '$(vPERCENTAGE_NEW )'=Null() or '$(vPERCENTAGE_NEW )'='0' or '$(vPERCENTAGE_NEW )'='' then

  vPERCENTAGE_NEW = 0.2;

  ENDIF

    NEW_PROJ:  

  sample $(vPERCENTAGE_NEW ) load  right([S/N],8) as [S/N],

     REGION ,

     MODEL,

     'STANDARD' as [MODULE],

     Date(Addmonths(T, 3)) as [START DATE],

     Date(AddYears(addmonths(T,3),5))as [ END DATE],

      'NEW  RETENTION'        as FLAG    

  resident WTable

  where REGION = '$(vPER_REG_N)' and FLAG<>'YES' ;

next

drop Tables PERCENTAGES;

Re: Join not recognizing Key field

You mentioned a join, where exactly is the join taking place? Is there more script?

Re: Join not recognizing Key field

Sorry, there is more below:

STORE WTable into $(vLocale)\WTable.qvd (qvd);

drop table WTable;

TABLE_TABLE:

load *,

  0 as TEST

resident NEW_PROJ;

drop table NEW_PROJ;

TABLE_JOIN:

join(TABLE_TABLE)

LOAD right([S/N],8) as [S/N],

     MODEL,

     [END DATE],

     [START DATE],

     [MODULE],

     STATUS,

      AGE

from $(vLocale)\WTable.qvd (qvd);

Re: Join not recognizing Key field

So,

the fields (END DATE, START DATE, MODULE and FLAG) from table NEW_PROJ has data different from WTable. I think it because of this why it is not working.

Re: Join not recognizing Key field

Can you post the whole script. I don't see the WTable created, but it is getting stored
