Get field from other table in script LOAD

Hi all.

I have two tables. My DETAIL table and my RULES table.

DEtail table:

NUM | FAMILIA |      EXAME      |  other fields not importante

x          aa            x-ray leg 2 parts

y          aa            x-ray arm

z          bb               ECO    

and my Rules table are:

FAMILIA | SeachString | %for value

aa               leg                    50

aa               arm                   40

bb               ECO                  12

I need to include in my DETAIL table [% for value] to all records.

I tried the function lookup and it's always give me the exact correspondence between the fields but i need to search in field EXAME [table DETAIL] if exists in ( begin middle or end) the string SearchString[table RULEs ].

I hope my result  is:

DEtail table:

NUM | FAMILIA |      EXAME      |     other fields not importante     ! %for value

x          aa            x-ray leg 2 parts          .....     .....     ....                    50

y          aa            x-ray arm                     .....     .....     ....                    40

z          bb               ECO                           .....     ....     ....                    12

w          bb               BAR                         ..     ...     ...     ...                    null

I work in Qlikview 10 SR2

Best regards

I don't know if there's a better way to do this, but I solved it by creating an intermediate table with all possible words in your EXAME field and linking that with your Rules table. Regards,

Hello, you can also left join the column from Rules to Detail, and just use 1 table as a result (or perhaps I don't understand your question):

load *, RecNo() as Id, SubStringCount(EXAME,' ') AS AmtSpaces inline [
x,aa,'x-ray leg 2 parts'
y,aa,'x-ray arm'
z,bb, ECO   

load * inline [

// Kim Waters:
left join (Detail)
load     FAMILIA,   // Joined column
         PCT        // Added column
resident Temp_Rules;

drop table Temp_Rules;
