    How to get data form two data silos or islands to straight table

    Pertti Lahtinen

      Hi eveyrone,


      The data is in separate silos.  Silos must not be connected by key field.


      How to make a straight table where dimension is a common field in both silos (different names) and expressions come from both silos.



      Silo A

      CustNameA, AmountA

      Tom, 10

      Tom, 10

      Bob, 25

      Tim, 30

      Jim, 40

      Jim, 50



      Silo B

      CustNameB, AmountB

      Tom, 1

      Tom, 3

      Bob, 2

      Bob, 5

      Tim, 3

      Jim, 4


      Straight table:

      Name     sum(AmountA)     sum(AmountB)

      Tom                         20                   4

      Bob                         25                   7

      Tim                         30                   3

      Jim                         90                    4
