[SOLVED] join 2 CSV files

Hello

I have 2 CSV files that I want to join. Of course they are not sorted on JOIN fields. Smiler

SET PCOMMA=ON
JOIN
SUCCESSMETRICSAGGREGATE.SUCCESSMETRICSAGGREGATE.STATE IN
SUCCESSMETRICSAGGREGATE TO ALL STATEGEO.STATEGEO.STATE IN STATEGEO
AS J0
END

I tried to flip joins, tried using MULTIPLE, ALL and UNIQUE in join type. I even tried adding SET PCOMMA=ON at the top but still does not work.

Question - When we join CSV or flat files Do they always have to be sorted in join field order or otherwise also it can work.


thanks

ya

CSV files basically are just flat files. So, yes, they need to be sorted in the same way to be able to do the join.
Alternative solution is to do a table on the to-file, hold it as a focus file with an index omn the join-field and then join to this focus file. That should solve your problem.

Hope this helps ...

I'm not sure of the answer to your specific question..but you could table your files and hold as Focus Files, Indexing the join fields and join with no problem. Someone else might answer your specific question.
