I hope I explain this in enough detail..
I have two data sources MS.xls and PS.xls. They both contain a field called Project and Project Description amongst several other fields.
I need the MS data to remain unmodified as its important on its own. When utilizing the PS file, I need to essentially say:
WHERE Project_PS= Project_MS
Pull fields x,y,z from MS.
I tried using Joins but got data from MS that I didn't want in PS and vice versa.
May be as below:
From C:\MS.xls <---- Update your path and filename here
From C:\PS.xls <---- Update your path and filename here
Where Exists (Project)
Not exactely sure what you need but maybe like
LOAD Project, [Project Description], OtherField
DROP TABLE T1;
Hi, Robyn Jones.
EXISTS (Project, [Project PS]);
I hope this helps!
This one got me the closest but it also removed data that I needed from the PS.xls
So.. I created this sample excel that has two sheets. Pretend each sheet is a separate file. I put data from MS and data from PS in each one. I need the MS data to NOT change at all- when I ask for Project.. I just want Project from MS.
When I pull data from PS- I expect to see every project in PS but the additional info from MS that aligns. IE Where PS 'A' matches something in MS 'Project' then display all the extra MS columns. Otherwise just give me the PS 'A' value with blanks in all the other columns.
maybe you just want to join your two tables?
Assuming that only Project field name is the same in both tables (otherwise rename the non-key fields), and that there are no duplicate Project entries in PS.xls (Project is a primary key).
The problem here is that i'm getting data from the MS table that I don't want.. for example if MS and PS both have Project 'A' but MS also has Project 'A.2'- I do not want both A and A,2 to come out but that's what's happening.
Sorry, I don't really understand your requirements.
Earlier you said, I need the MS data to NOT change at all- when I ask for Project.. I just want Project from MS.
To me, this sounds as you want to show also Project A.2
