Join Two Tables and Prepare Report

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 23, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


            I have a select query which is executing well. Now, I want to add one more field to that query. That field is not in the current query table, It is in the another table.

How do I join those two tables and get that field value in the existing select query.?

LINQ-to-SQL: How do you join more than 2 tables?

Hi there, I was trying to find out how I can join more than 2 tables using the LINQ-to-SQL syntax. For instance, joining 2 tables in SQL:  SELECT * FROM Table1 AS T1 INNER JOIN Table2 AS T2 ON T1.Key=T2.Column1WHERE T2.Key='17'; can be expressed as: var Result = from T1 in DbContext.Table1 join T2 in DbContext.Table2 on T1.Key equals T2.ForeignKey where T2.Key=17 select new { T1, T2 }; But how would I join 3 or more tables using LINQ? For example: SELECT * FROM (Table1 AS T1 INNER JOIN Table2 AS T2 ON T1.Key=T2.Column1) INNER JOIN Table3 AS T3 ON T3.Key=T2.Column2 WHERE T2.Key='37'; I've been searching and experimenting and I cannot seem to find any informraiton on this. One example I found involves putting the result for the frist join into a temp object, and then performing the second join. I'm not sure performance-wise if that's the same as doing a 3-table join directly using a single SQL statement. Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks,- K.

Join two fact tables




I have the following two fact tables, upon which a cube was built. As you can see, these two tables have most of the common (shared) dimensions except for ProductTypeID (product dimension) on fct_productsales table. The relationship between these two fact tables is 1(fct_loansales) to Many (fct_productsales).

When I browse these measures from the cube, they look fine (and break down perfectly) through all the shared dimensions.

However, when I try to filter or browse through product dimension (along with other dimensions), the measure values from fct_productsales will filter down correctly, but the values from fct_loansales does not change.  I tryied to create degenerate dimension from fct_loansales, but no luck. Any help is appreciated.

Join Tables For Definitions (Data Table/Definition Table)



I am well versed with Join/Outer Join/Inner Join. My question is not related to normal Joining of two tables. Its little complex. Let me see if I can explain well.

There are two tables, were data is stored.

Name_Info : nvarchar(10)
Date_Info : smalldate()
Spec_Info_1 : tinyint
Spec_Info_2 : tinyint
Spec_Info_3 ; tinyint

Name_Data : nvarchar(10)
City_Data : nvarchar(10)
State_Data : nvarchar(10)

To join these two tables, I use the following query (joined on Name_Info ON Name_Data)


SELECT Name, Date=CONVERT(varchar, Date, 101), City, State,
CASE Spec_Info_1 WHEN '0' THEN 'House' WHEN '2' THEN 'Shop' WHEN '3' THEN 'Bay' ELSE '-' END AS Spec_Info_1, 
CASE Spec_Info_2 WHEN '0' THEN '10 Feet' WHEN '2' THEN '20 Feet' WHEN '3' THEN '40 Feet' ELSE '-' END AS Spec_Info_2, 
CASE Spec_Info_3 WHEN '0' THEN '2 Windows' WHEN '2' THEN '4 Windows' WHEN '3' THEN '6 Windows' ELSE '-'  END AS Spec_Info_3
FROM Table_Spec_Data LEFT OUTER JOIN Table_Name_Data On Table_Spec_Data.Name_Info=Table_Name_Data.Name_Data  

SQL - Join Tables on Column Name and Row Field Value



I have two SQL tables (SQL 2005) that I need to join but am in need of some assistance. Essentially I need to join a column name with row field values.

The first table contains the following columns

  • Loan ID
  • SSN
  • Ord_SignedApp
  • Ord_Title
  • Ord_Reg
  • Ord_Name

The second table contains the following columns

  • Item
  • Ord

However, the rows in the second table for the Ord column contain the following values:

  • Ord_SignedApp
  • Ord_Title
  • Ord_Reg
  • Ord_Name

I need to join the row field value of the second table with the column name of the first table. I want to display the values of the respsective columns of table one (Ord_SignedApp, Ord_Title, Ord_Reg, Ord_Name) and place them in a new column. These values are represented as dates

Any assistance you can provide would be much appreciated.

Thank you for your help,

Multiple Tables needed for Report Builder Problem


I have 3 tables I need to join: Voucher, Voucher_Detail, and Place
Voucher is related to Voucher_Detail by column voucher_run_id
Voucher has no relationship to Place
Voucher_Detail is related to Place by column place_id

I have solved the one to many relationship problem I was having between Voucher and Voucher_Detail by adding a New Named
Query called LeftOuterJoin.

In my DSV, the Voucher table links to the LeftOuterJoin which links to the Voucher_Detail which links to the Place

When I go into Report Builder, as soon as I select Voucher_Detail ( which is the table that has the most columns I need in the report),
the Voucher table disappears from view.

Not sure what I have missed. Obviously I need access to all 3 tables' data.

Performance tuning > two tables with strings > best query to join them


I have two subqueries which build a string (varchar(200)), first subquery creates 200000 records and second 50000 records, how can I write a select statement to get records from subquery first with string existing in second subquery records.

Will sorting both the sub query results be helpful? Kindly advice for best performing select statement.

How to show the content of two tables in one report?


Hi there,

I am working with reporting services for the first time and I have a very basic question, but can't find a solution for it anywhere. I use Visual Studio 2008 and SQL Server 2005.

Here is the problem:

I have two SQL data tables, one consisting of general data about a person (name, age,..) and one containing their employment data (joining date, salary, ...). I now want to show both tables for one particular person in one report such that the general data as well as the employment data each have their own section, such as


Name: Thomas Mueller

Age: 27

How to get all data from tables when inner join is not enough


Suppose I have two tables "t1" and "t2"

t1 :
id  FirstName  Age
1   Joe        22
2   James      33
3   Bart       28
id  LastName  
1   Coymer
2   Manes

I can combine the data from the two tables using an inner join.

1  Joe    22  CoyLap
2  James  33  Manes

The problem though is that the person "Bart" with an Id of 3 is
left out because he does not have an entry in the second table.
So how can I include Bart in the output in such a way that the output
might look like this:

1  Joe    22   CoyLap
2  James  33   Manes
3  Bart   null null

Or spaces can instead appear for Barts last name and age instead of null.
Basically I just need Bart in the output as well even though
he has no age and last name.

Entity Framework - how to join tables without LINQ and with only string?


Hi all,

I have a question about Entity Framework. Please answer if you know answer on this. I have such query :

    String queryRaw =
        "SELECT " +
        "p.ProductName AS ProductName " +
        "FROM ProductEntities.Products AS p " +
        "INNER JOIN CategoryEntities.Categories AS c " +
        "ON p.CategoryID = c.CategoryID ";
    ObjectQuery<DbDataRecord> query = new ObjectQuery<DbDataRecord>(queryRaw, entityContext);
    GridView1.DataSource = query;

Particularly I want to join few tables in one query, but I can NOT use LINQ and can NOT use ObjectQuery with objects mapped to DB fields inside my query. Because each entity creates dynamically. So this is what i can NOT use :



The question is can I use something like this instead of using objects?

query.Join ("INNER JOIN CategoryEntities.Category ON p.CategoryID = c.CategoryID ");

help with multiple tables join

i am having trouble with selecting data across tables.

When practitioner login, it has to automatically match the GPNo with the UserName

string name = HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.Name;

SELECT  Practitioner.GPNo FFROM Practitioner WHERE Practitioner.UserName=@UserName

And then, it has to select the date from Consultation Table

and also the patient first name and last name

SELECT Patient.firstName, Patient.lastName, FROM Patient WHERE Patient.PatientID=Consultation.patientID

is it possible to combine these statement into one statement with JOIN?

thank you
