New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

Hi,

I face some challenges in joining three tables and fetching out columns from all the three tables

JOIN COL1 FROM TBL1 TO COL1 FROM TBL2 AS J0
END
JOIN COL2 FROM TBL2 TO COL2 FROM TBL3 AS J1
END

Now i am, able to fetch columns from TBL1 and TBL2 but not from TBL3.

TABLE FILE TBL1
PRINT
TBL3.A
END
-RUN

This gives me the folloeing error. Unrecognized field 'A'.

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Regards,
Ramya

JOIN COL1 IN TBL1 TO COL1 IN TBL2 AS J0
END
JOIN J0.SEG01.COL2 IN TBL1 TO COL2 IN TBL3 AS J1
END


Creates a relationship such as
TBL1
|
TBL2
|
TBL3


Instead of
JOIN COL1 IN TBL1 TO COL1 IN TBL2 AS J0
END
JOIN COL2 IN TBL1 TO COL2 IN TBL3 AS J1
END


Which is a relationship such as
    TBL1
     |
    _ _
   |   |
TBL2  TBL3


Shakila suggestion is good until COL2 exist in TBL1.

It's always a good idea to use GUI to create JOINs. That way you'll have it properly defined.

Ramya & Shakila,

The simple syntax for JOIN is:
JOIN hfld1 IN hostfile 
TO [ALL]
crfield IN crfile AS joinname
END   

Notice: one does not use FROM.

Since you do not use ALL this mean that you are in a one-to-one relationship.
So, if COL2 is in TBL2 then you will get Martin's first relationship. If it is in TBL1 you will get the second one.
It does not depend on the JOIN command.

Hi Martin,

Thanks for your reply.

I used the join as suggeted by you.

JOIN COL1 IN TBL1 TO COL1 IN TBL2 AS J0
END
JOIN J0.SEG01.COL2 IN TBL2 TO COL2 IN TBL3 AS J1
END

I am unable to print it.

TABLE FILE TBL1
PRINT
TBL2.COL
END
-RUN
-EXIT

Again it gives me the error, unrecognized field name TBL2.COL

Any suggestions on this?

Thanks,
Ramya

Hi Ramya,

Since you're using tables and fields from a JOIN you must refer them as from the join.

So it must look like this:
TABLE FILE TBL1
PRINT
J0.SEG01.COL
END
-RUN
-EXIT

Where you have to specify if it's from the parent (TBL1), the first child (which is your first join with TBL2 but now referred as J0) and also the segment's name (SEG01 in my example). Then if you have fields from TBL3, you need to reference them as J1.SEG01.xxxxx.

Hope that help.

Ramya,

That is not the join that Martin suggested.

Check his post against what you are using, correct and retry. Hint - see bold piece below.

JOIN COL1 IN TBL1 TO COL1 IN TBL2 AS J0
END
JOIN J0.SEG01.COL2 IN TBL2 TO COL2 IN TBL3 AS J1
END
