CDS view - Left outer join table field in Where condition not working.

Hi All,

I have a requirement like below:

A custom table is there:

Z_CUST_TAB with fields:

EBELN (Primary key)

EBELP (Primary key)

run_no(Primary key)



Created a CDS view for purpose as below -

select distinct from ekkn as ekkn

inner join ekpo as ekpo

on ekpo.ebeln = ekkn.ebeln

and ekpo.ebelp = ekkn.ebelp

and ekpo.loekz <> 'X'

and ekkn.vbeln = ''

left outer join Z_CUST_TAB

on Z_CUST_TAB.ebeln = ekpo.ebeln

and Z_CUST_TAB.ebelp = ekpo.ebelp








Z_CUST_TAB.run_no <> '00000'



There might be a scenario for that EKPO / EKKO will be filled but Z_CUST_TAB will not be filled.

In this kinds of scenario my CDS view is not working, means no line item is showing ( while executing the view from se16n) for a PO of the previous kind.

When I am removing where condition of the CDS view, my CDS view is working fine.

But as per my requirement I have to implement the where condition in the CDS view only.

Please tell me where I could be wrong.

Thanks in Advance.

    Why do you use a LEFT JOIN if you put a WHERE condition on the result set, what did you actually expect, in some case the where clause should be moved into the ON condition to get proper result?
