Re: Link table creation

User:

Noconcatenate

Load autonumber(LoginId & Server) as LoginIDServer,

        LoginId,

        Server,

        FullName,

        Emailid

;

LinkTable:

Load Distinct LoginIDServer,

        LoginId,

        Server,

Resident User;

Drop tables LoginId, Server from User;

Project:

Noconcatenate

Load  autonumber(Server & Project_Path) as ServerProject_Path,

Project_Path,

Project_Title,

Project_Created_On,

Server

;

Join(LinkTable)

Load Distinct ServerProject_Path

Project_Path,

Server

Resident Project;

Drop Fields Project_Path,Server from Project

;

LoginDetails:

Noconcatenate

Load autonumber(LoginId & Server) as LoginIDServer,

        autonumber(Server & Project_Path) as ServerProject_Path,

LoginId,

Server,

Project_Path,

Access_On,

;

Join(LinkTable)

LoginIDServer,

ServerProject_Path,

LoginId,

Server

Resident LoginDetails

;

Drop tables LoginId,Server from LoginDetails;


This must solve your problem..Notice it is untested...

instead of join may be you have to use concatenate depending on the data!

Link table creation

Hello Sravan,

Heartiest thanks for quick response.

I tried this but still it is creating one synthetic key (LoginIDServer+ServerProject_Path) and as my data too big, getting failure.

I guessed why it is creating synthetic key: In LinkTable table, after first two join, there are 5 fields:

LoginIDServer,

ServerProject_Path,

LoginId,

Server,

Project_Path

As we go further to join the LoginIDServer, ServerProject_Path from LoginDetails table to LinkTable table, it creates synthetic key.

Can you please guide me how to remove this synthetic key?

Thanks

Link table creation

Hello Samir,

QV links tables together using same fieldnames. This is a very powerful and convenient feature of QV but it may also result into funny and unexpected results (data-structures like snyc-tables) if you are not familar with it. So the first try would be to use the qualify - statement before loading the seond table. Or rename the according fields, if you do not want the links.

Second is to look where it is necessary to link tables via keys together. It can be very useful to link tables, best with only one corresponding keyfield in each table.

HtH for the moment

Re: Link table creation

Hi Samir,

I think what you need is one more combined Key...

User:

Noconcatenate

Load autonumber(LoginId & Server) as LoginIDServer,

        LoginId,

        Server,

        FullName,

        Emailid

;

LinkTable:

Load Distinct LoginIDServer,

        LoginId,

        Server,

Resident User;

Drop fields LoginId, Server from User;

Project:

Noconcatenate

Load  autonumber(Server & Project_Path) as ServerProject_Path,

Project_Path,

Project_Title,

Project_Created_On,

Server

;

Join(LinkTable)

Load Distinct ServerProject_Path

Project_Path,

Server

Resident Project;

Drop Fields Project_Path,Server from Project

;

LoginDetails:

Noconcatenate

Load autonumber(LoginId & Server & Project_Path) as LoginIDServerProjectPath,

        autonumber(LoginId & Server) as LoginIDServer,

        autonumber(Server & Project_Path) as ServerProject_Path,

LoginId,

Server,

Project_Path,

Access_On,

;

Join(LinkTable) distinct

LoginIDServerProjectPath,

LoginIDServer,

ServerProject_Path,

LoginId,

Server

Resident LoginDetails

;

Drop Fields LoginIDServer,ServerProject_Path,LoginId,Server from LoginDetails;



If It still does not help, add an example!
