using 1 description field for 2 different ID fields

Hi experts

i want to connect 2 fields to 1 description field like below:

table1:

select id,

stateofrecord as table1_stateofrecord

from a;

table2:

select id,

stateofrecord as table2_stateofrecord

from b;

load * inline

[ stateofrecord ,stateofrecord _desc

1,a

2,b

3,c

];

i want something like both of table1_stateofrecord  and table2_stateofrecord  connect to stateofrecord _desc

i use ApplyMap() but i can't achieve to what i  want.can anyone help me?

Hi behnaz,

can you specify a bit more what you want as output?

What form does the ID you get from both tables take? Is that like 1,2,3...?

The only thing I can think of right now, though it might sound stupid:

When you want to use ApplyMap() in those two LOAD statements, you have to load that inline table first.

Hi Behanz,

Are you trying Applymap like this:

Status_Map:

Mapping load * inline

[ stateofrecord ,stateofrecord _desc

1,a

2,b

3,c];

table1:

select id,

stateofrecord as table1_stateofrecord

from a;

table2:

select id,

stateofrecord as table2_stateofrecord

from b;

table1_res:

Noconcatenate load id,

[table1_stateofrecord],

applymap('Status_Map',trim([table1_stateofrecord]),'NA' ) as tab1_Status_Desc

resident table1;

table2_res:

Noconcatenate load id,

[table2_stateofrecord],

applymap('Status_Map',trim([table2_stateofrecord]),'NA' ) as tab2_Status_Desc

resident table2;

i have 2 tables that have a field with name 'state_of_record' in table 1 it is as  state_of_record1 and in table2 it is as state_of_record2, this field shows State of each records in these tables the value of this field is 1,2,3,5 :

1 means the record is on progress.

2 means the record is completed

3 means the record is Completed and Submitted

5 means the record is Confirmed

these description are common for state_of_record1 and state_of_record2.

actually  state_of_record1  and state_of_record2 have same nature and shows state of a record.

i want to know can i have a description field that both of 'state_of_record1' and 'state_of_record2'  use it?

maybe it is such a ridiculous question but i want to know is there a way for doing this?

Best regards

Hi Behnaz,

You can not use the same description table for both Table1 & Table2 since it will form a loop otherwise. You will need to use them separately

You can use it in the same way as given by Abey just a little ammendment

Status_Map:
load * inline

[ stateofrecord ,stateofrecord _desc

1,a

2,b

3,c

];


table1:

select id,

stateofrecord as table1_stateofrecord,
applymap('Status_Map',trim(stateofrecord),'NA' ) as tab1_Status_Desc

from a;


table2:

select id,

stateofrecord as table2_stateofrecord,
applymap('Status_Map',trim(stateofrecord),'NA' ) as tab1_Status_Desc

from b;

Thanks...
