Unable to Link Two Tables of Different Database

Hi,

I am new to QlickView. I have two tables of different database. Both the table have two common columns. 

First Table have :

ItemCode, BatchNumber, TotalPrice

Second Table have:

ItemCode, BatchNumber, Cost

 

I want a result in Table Box :

ItemCode, BatchNumber, TotalPrice, Cost

 

I am able to fetch the Cost for few rows, rest of the rows i am getting NULL value even Cost price is available for that batch.

Can you try to load the stock table first and attach the table here?

Just the stock table without bill register table.

Here's the catch:

In your registry table, Batch is text format.

In stock table , Batch is numeric.

When QV creates association, it is not able to link these two columns with different formats together.

 

Try this script after you have loaded your stock table.

tempHMS_STOCKGRNITEMS:
load text(Code)as Code, Batch ,Cost
resident "HMS_STOCKGRNITEMS(NOLOCK)";

drop table "HMS_STOCKGRNITEMS(NOLOCK)";

 

Thanks and regards,

Arthur Fong

Thank you Very Much Arthur Fong,

This script is not working, may i convert the batch to VARCHAR in SQL statement using Convert() function like:-

SELECT Distinct GI.ITEMDR "Code",
CONVERT(VARCHAR(20),GB.BatchNo) "Batch"
