Hi Paul,

    I saw your questions in Qlikcommunity. I think knowledge about Linktable will be helpfull for you. If two or more common fields exist between 2 fact tables you are recomomed to creat linktable. Because if you don't do this circle or synfield will appear like this :

after create a linktable, you can avoid syntable:

Hi Paul,

I think you are joining the tables with the wrong key because of this the tables are not joining properly, no single value is matching in both the tables.  In Sales table your key values are 1-254 and Debit values are from 255-322.  Check this with your team regarding the Key column between the two tables.

Hope this helps you.

Regards,

Jagan.

Re: use fiueld = cust_id as link between sales table and debt table

Hi Jagan

I am using the cust_id field to link sales and debt table :-

(1) from Payment Table.

AutoNumberHash128(@1:9T,'TDSS') As LINK_KEY_DEBT,

@1:9T as [CUST_ID_PAY],

(2) from sales Table.

autoNumberHash128(@1:10T,'TDSID') As LINK_KEY_DEBT,
@1:10T as [cust_id],

This is what i need , so that i can know particular customer , how much their contribution and their outstanding debt.

Paul
