    Hi Rajeev,

    The solutions you've been given are SAP ABAB code, but you are talking about Data Services, aren't you ??? Anyhow I agree with the inner join solution already given to you in ABAP code, but of course in Data Services you would use a Query transform to do this, with the join condition and the conditions that the three fields from Table B are = 'Y' place in the WHERE tab.

    you have two options : you can can put the logic in one single place and than you need to create a function module you can use as extractor, or more easy, you can create an extractor on table A and do the lookup on table B in the user exit. the logic of the code is more or less the same.

    i'll take the user exit as example:

    create an extractor in rso2 based on table A

    append the extractor with any fields needed from table B

    create an user exit

    first select the data from table B, then when looping over the data of A read should be something like this.

    select field1 field2...

    from TABLE B

    for all entries in table A

    into itab

    where table A-key1 eq table B-key1

    loop at e_t_data

    read table itab with key key1 eq e_t_data-key1.

    if sy-subrc = 0.

    assign the corresponding fields of table B to your datasource fields




    if you could find more then one record in table B, you first need to sort the itab on the key ascending and delete the adjacent duplicates. else the read table is not working

    What is this "condition" you need to "check"? Perhaps it's not much more than a simple join condition / WHERE clause?

    Best wishes,

      Hi Rajeev,

      Select records from Table B where field1 = field2 = field3 = Y into itab1.

      Select from Table A where the ID is equal to ID of the records selected in the above statement into itab2.

      Loop at itab1.

      read itab2 matching ID.

      move the fields to final structure and append target table.
