From 2 Tables to 1
Posted on 2002-07-18
I have two Tables within an Access 2000 db.
They are from separate companies but regarding the same products (vitamins).
I am unable to accurately link the tables on a unique identifier (in this case SKU's) as one company uses the original SKU and other company has altered some (but not all) of them.
For this reason (I believe), I am unable to link the tables on the SKU and enforce referential integrity. I get an error message. There are however, a large number of SKU's that do in fact match.
What I would like to do, is with the products that have SKU's that DO match, take the contents of the "description" field from one table and add it to the other table.
This may sound odd, but I want to make a single comprehensive table of these products that I can then use as a single table database to generate .php pages.
Even though it will be incomplete, there should be about 600-700 SKU matches. A good starting point.
