    KEEP command - why to use that?

    Friedrich Hofmann

      Hi,

       

      I will admit right at the start of my post that I have not really read in depth the blog_posts about "Join and Keep" and such. I have had a look at them, though.

      I think I understand pretty much how the one and the other work. What I do not understand is the WHY

      => Why would I want to avoid merging two tables and thus use a KEEP instead of a JOIN?

          (I can think of one, it makes the datamodel easier to associate with the tabs of the script and the charts on the GUI of my app - but
          that is more to do with internal programming standards and policy; Is there a technical reason, too?)

       

      Thanks a lot!

      Best regards,
