How should each table be linked to the other?  You could try concatenating the 3 tables.

Table_1:

Load *

From ...;

concatentate (Table_1)

Table_2:

Load *

From ...;

...

Hi friend you are getting the synthetic key because there are more than one field common in your table.Use the folowing methods

1.You can use join or concatenation

Table1:

load all the field

Concatenate

Table2

All field

2.Use proper aliasing if needed.for example if Emp.no is making a synthetic key between two table than.replace

Emp.no as Employee no in one table

.

Hope this will help you.

Hi Friend,

Rename( Like putting aliases) the fields which is common in all the tables or

use qualify command bfore loading the next two tables, if you use qualify command then it ll automatically rename all the fields or

use composite key technic to avoid synthetic key formation or loop formation.

Try it...

Thanks & Regards,
