## Calculation of field from 2 tables

Hi

I have one table (called 'Sales') which has sales data by product e.g.

Product,Amount

AAA,100

BBB,200

CCC,150

DDD,300

and I have another table (called 'Costs') which has standard costs by product e.g

Product,Cost

AAA,0.05

BBB,0.01

CCC,0.025

DDD,0.035

In the script how can I produce another table which has total costs by product (I want to multiply Amount by Cost for each product)

This is a very simplistic example, my tables in reality are much more complicated but this is a good example to get me started.

Thanks

## Re: Calculation of field from 2 tables

Assuming you have your tables joined (into one fact table), you can create a new table as 'Total Costs':

Load

Product,

Amount * Cost as TotalCost

Resident Sales;

The TotalCost field gives you that total cost by product.

Hi Adrian, if you only want to assign the cost of the product, and it's only one cost for each product you can add a mapping table, ie:

MAP_Costs:

Mapping LOAD Product, Cost From CostsTable;

Sales:

LOAD ....

ApplyMap('Costs', Product) as Cost,

ApplyMap('Costs', Product)*Amount as TotalCost

From SalesTable;

c:

load * inline [

Product,Cost

AAA,0.05

BBB,0.01

CCC,0.025

DDD,0.035

];

s:

load * inline [

Product,Amount

AAA,100

BBB,200

CCC,150

DDD,300

];

d:

NoConcatenate load * resident c;

join (d) load * Resident s;

left join (d) load Product, Cost*Amount as TotalCost Resident d;

DROP Table c, s;
