I hope you can understand (and maybe solve) my problem.
Generally I try to left outer join three tables. The third table is used for a WHERE-statement.
The three table structures are the following:
table 1 (user)
user1 | key
table 2 (detail)
key | ID
table 3 (header)
ID | user2
...and I want to achieve the following structure (as example filled with data):
user | key | ID
xy | a | 001
xy | b | #
z | b | #
The clue ist the usage of the third table. I need the table to set user1 and user2 equal (WHERE) but there are two problems:
1) Obviously I can't left outer join two tables with each other. In this case I already used the 'key' of table 1 to join it with the 'key' of table 2. So I can't left outer join the 'ID' of table 2 with the 'ID' of table 3. Error message that I can only left outer join a table once. Any proposals?
2) I have to include a WHERE to equal user1 with user2. But I am not allowed to use the user2 from table 3 because of the left outer join.
I tried this coding:
SELECT auser1 akey b~id INTO TABLE itab FROM ( table1 AS a
LEFT OUTER JOIN table2 AS b ON akey = bkey )
LEFT OUTER JOIN table3 AS c ON bID = cID )
WHERE auser1 = cuser2.
I would really appreciate your help.
