Angel - didn't work with the and

Raj - gives null resuts as I think the where is being applied to the whole query, not just the above join statement

What do you mean by not working? Can you post the result of that query and expected result?

Even if 'x' exists, you have used JOIN between the two tables. So both should have the same related data. Then only the result gets the 'x' related data.

Just double-check the existance of 'x' data using this query
SELECT  *
FROM    file2.csv
WHERE   app = 'x' 

Open in new window


If YES, continue with this query to check whether the related records of 'x' data is in other table
SELECT  *
FROM    file.csv
WHERE   ent IN ( SELECT ent
                 FROM   file2.csv
                 WHERE  app = 'x' )

Open in new window


Please let us know
Raj
