Compare 2 Text Fields from 2 different tables

Hello all,

I have 3 tables (A,B,C) and i want to compare text field from a table to text field from C table.

for example:

A:

LOAD * INLINE [

    ID, TEXT1

    1, aaaa

    2, yyyy

    3, cccc

    4, dddd

    5, eeee

    6, bbbb

];

B:

LOAD * INLINE [

    ID, ID2

    1, 6

    2, 5

    3, 4

    4, 3

    5, 2

    6, 1

];

C:

LOAD * INLINE [

    ID2, TEXT2

    1, bbbb

    2, aaaa

    3, cccc

    4, rrrr

    5, hhhh

    6, ffff

];

I tried to use this function if(TEXT1=TEXT2,null(),'Different') as expression in my Straight table and it works perfectly with the example tables.

But when I tried to put in in my real tables (every table has 2,000,000 records) it stuck.

Any suggestions?

Hi,

Instead of using this in straight table, do the same in script, so that the performance would be better.

A:

LOAD * INLINE [

    ID, TEXT1

    1, aaaa

    2, yyyy

    3, cccc

    4, dddd

    5, eeee

    6, bbbb

];

LEFT JOIN (A)

LOAD * INLINE [

    ID, ID2

    1, 6

    2, 5

    3, 4

    4, 3

    5, 2

    6, 1

];

LEFT JOIN (A)

LOAD * INLINE [

    ID2, TEXT2

    1, bbbb

    2, aaaa

    3, cccc

    4, rrrr

    5, hhhh

    6, ffff

];

Data:

LOAD

     *,

if(TEXT1=TEXT2,null(),'Different')  AS Status

RESIDENT A;

DROP TABLE A;

Hope this helps you.

Regards,

Jagan.
