Re: Regarding circular loop and Linktable

A Picture of your table viewer would be helpful but in general when using a link table model.  The table must Either link to the link table or to a dimension table, it cannot link to both.  Without seeing the data structure I'm not real sure what your issue is.

Before looking into the actual problem, first take a call if the problem can be resolved using Concatenate.

Creating a Link table is expensive interms of time and involves lot of attention to your script.
