As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only. Moving forward, myibi is our community platform to learn, share, and collaborate. We have the same Focal Point forum categories in myibi, so you can continue to have all new conversations there. If you need access to myibi, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and provide your corporate email address, company, and name.
Think of match as I have two files (or more) that I want to either merge together or do a screening to get say all in one file that are not in the other or all that that have a record in both files and so on. ( A and B, A or B, A not B, B not A, and so on.) Join of files require you have a key field to join on and for those records in the primary file the joined to file may or may not have a matching record.
All syntax I leave to you and the manuals and developer studio.
Have a great day.
