Subselect in sql script

Hi all,

With this problem I need a subselect I think.

Let me give you an illustration of the problem: imagine we store our products in a storehouse. Product A120 is stored in storehouse 10, as you can see below. I would like to get the number 10 also in the row of AD121, because it has the jointproduct: AD120. Does anyone know how to perform this?

The problem is:

PRODUCTID
JOINTPRODUCT
STOREHOUSEID
AD120-10
AD121AD120-

My SQL looks like:

SELECT

     product.productid

     product.jointproduct

     storehouse.storehouseid

FROM

     product,

     storehouse

WHERE

     product.id = storehouse.productid;

As I said, I think a subselect can solve the problem but I don't know how to perform that.

I hope someone can help me out.

Kind regards,

Henco

Re: Subselect in sql script

Assuming  you are writing this query in the edit script  you can try like this

FinalTable1 :

select

productid,
jointproduct,
storehouseid

from product,
storehouse
where product.id = storehouse.productid;

join

select

productid as jointproduct,
storehouseid as storehouseidfornull

from product,
storehouse
where product.id = storehouse.productid;

FinalTable:

load

productid,
jointproduct,
if( isnull(storehouseid) ,storehouseidfornull ,storehouseid) as storehouseid

load

productid,
jointproduct,
storehouseid,

storehouseidfornull

resident FinalTable1 ;

drop table FinalTable1;

Subselect in sql script

Hi Henco,

it seems that table can be reorganized in QlikView  by using hierarchies (please see QV Reference Manual, page 489; NodeId=PRODUCTID, PARENTID=JOINTPRODUCT),  in order to get described result.

Subselect in sql script

Hi Krunoslav,

Thanks for your reaction. I have read the Reference Manual, but can't translate it to my specific issue.

Don't you think it can be solved with a subselect / subquery?

Kind regards,

Re: Subselect in sql script

Hi. You have modified the query no ? This query can't retrieve the results you show us, because of a inner join between product and storehouse and AD121 have no product.id. Here is the SQL that can retrieve the results:

WITH PRODUCT AS

(SELECT 'AD120' "PRODUCTID",

NULL "JOINTPRODUCT",

1 "ID" FROM DUAL

UNION

SELECT 'AD121' "PRODUCTID",

'AD120' "JOINTPRODUCT",

NULL "ID" FROM DUAL),

STOREHOUSE AS

(SELECT 1 "PRODUCTID",

10 "STOREHOUSEID" FROM DUAL)

-- Start of query

SELECT

     PRODUCT.PRODUCTID,

     PRODUCT.JOINTPRODUCT,

     STOREHOUSE.STOREHOUSEID

FROM

     PRODUCT,

     STOREHOUSE

WHERE

     PRODUCT.ID = STOREHOUSE.PRODUCTID(+);

And here is the query that solves your issue (query starts at "Start of query", the WITH clauses are here to give me virtual tables).

What the query does? It pre-calculate a virtual table product by seeking the product.id from parent if there is no product.id in the row. So for AD121, as there is no product.id, the sub-query will seek the product.id of AD121's parent : AD120.

WITH PRODUCT AS

(SELECT 'AD120' "PRODUCTID",

NULL "JOINTPRODUCT",

1 "ID" FROM DUAL

UNION

SELECT 'AD121' "PRODUCTID",

'AD120' "JOINTPRODUCT",

NULL "ID" FROM DUAL),

STOREHOUSE AS

(SELECT 1 "PRODUCTID",

10 "STOREHOUSEID" FROM DUAL)

-- Start of query

SELECT

     "PRODUCT_UNIFIED".PRODUCTID,

     "PRODUCT_UNIFIED".JOINTPRODUCT,

     STOREHOUSE.STOREHOUSEID

FROM

     (Select

        "PRODUCT".PRODUCTID "PRODUCTID",

        "PRODUCT".JOINTPRODUCT "JOINTPRODUCT",

        nvl("PRODUCT".ID, "PARENT_PRODUCT".ID) "ID"

      from

        PRODUCT "PRODUCT"

        left join PRODUCT "PARENT_PRODUCT" on ("PARENT_PRODUCT".PRODUCTID = "PRODUCT".JOINTPRODUCT)

     ) "PRODUCT_UNIFIED",

     STOREHOUSE

WHERE

     "PRODUCT_UNIFIED".ID = STOREHOUSE.PRODUCTID(+);

Re: Subselect in sql script

Hi,

here is example how it can be done with hierarchy (just copy code below and reload script):

TABLE:

LOAD * INLINE [

    PRODUCTID, JOINTPRODUCT, STOREHOUSEID

    AD120, , 10

    AD121, AD120

];

TABLE1:

Hierarchy (PRODUCTID, JOINTPRODUCT, STOREHOUSEID) LOAD Distinct PRODUCTID, JOINTPRODUCT, STOREHOUSEID

Resident  TABLE;

drop Field STOREHOUSEID, STOREHOUSEID2;

RENAME Field STOREHOUSEID1 to STOREHOUSEID;

DROP Table TABLE;

Re: Subselect in sql script

Hi,

As ever with Qlikview, there's always a number of ways to do things, here's another ...

SourceData:
LOAD * INLINE [
PRODUCTID, JOINTPRODUCT, STOREHOUSEID
AD120,,10
AD121,AD120,];


Products:
LOAD
PRODUCTID,
if(LEN(LTRIM(STOREHOUSEID))=0,Lookup('STOREHOUSEID','PRODUCTID',JOINTPRODUCT,'SourceData'),STOREHOUSEID) as STOREHOUSEID
resident SourceData;

drop table SourceData;
