    Question about qlikview joining

      Dear all, we're trying to create a new document reading data from two tables

       

      INVOICES   has three columns YEAR, NUMBER and CODCLI

      SUPPLIERS has only 1 column CODCLI

       

      We have several suppliers without any invoice.

       

      When we create a Table from INVOICES we see some rows with NUMBER and YEAR NULL for SUPPLIER that haven't invoices.

       

      At the moment we remove these rows choosing to Omit NULL Values

      Is this the correct way?

      Is it possible to perform this action in another way?

      We'd like to perform something similar to an inner join between INVOICES and SUPPLIERS tables.

      Thank you for your help.

      Best regards

      Fabrizio

          Well depends if you are gonna use those supplier information somewhere in your dashboard at some point.

           

          If you know for sure you wont show those suppliers at some point in the report what's the point on having the data in the first place?

           

          Assuming that what i said is true for your case

          Invoices:

          Load

          YEAR,

          NUMBER,

          CODCLI

          from "yoursourceInvoices"

           

          LEFT JOIN

          Suppliers:

          LOAD

          CODCLI

          from "yoursourceSuppliers"

           

          This script wont show suppliers without any invoice.

           

          Hope it helps.
