Left outer join using infocube and inobject in infoset

Hello All,

I am trying to build an infoset for which i have infocube on left and infobject on right, i need to do a left outer join ( which is like i want all records of infocube no matter if that join condition has a record in inobject or not ) . I tried right clicking on the link on infocube cube side but there is no option of left outer join, but when i do the same on info object i can see and i think that will be an left outer join from info object to infocube, but i want reverse. In a nutshel what i am trying to achieve is all records in infocube should be seen in query with the couple of field values from infoobjects, if say for example if i dont have that record info object for that key, in that case also i want to see that infocube record.

    Hi Sied.

    Please check the note 1238583.

    For performance reasons is not possible to perform a left outer join with infocubes.

    You need to think another model to construct this scenario and get this information.
