Hi,

I have two sql statements that I need to combine but I am not sure how to do that.  One is an  xmltype statement.  I need to add the scn.test_id as the key field to the xml on the bottom.

select
scn.test_id,
diff.test_elem_diff_related_fld_nm
from
test_set_e left  
test_sceen scn
where
scn.test_id = left.test_id
and diff.test_elem_compr_fld_nm = fn.field_name


==========================================================



with myXML as (
select xmltype(TEST_ELEM_DIFF_RELATED_FLD_NM)
xmlcol from test_element_compr_field_diff
where isvalid(TEST_ELEM_DIFF_RELATED_FLD_NM) = 1)
select
extractvalue(xmlcol,'/system/deviceName') "DeviceName",
extractvalue(xmlcol,'/system/meterNumber/VAL1') "Meter No 1",
extractvalue(xmlcol,'/system/meterNumber/VAL2') "Meter No 2",
extractvalue(xmlcol,'/system/revenueUploadIndicatorCode') "Rev Upload",
extractvalue(xmlcol,'/system/sourceSystemName') "Source System",
extractvalue(xmlcol,'/system/sourceSystemServerName/VAL1') "Server Name 1",
extractvalue(xmlcol,'/system/sourceSystemServerName/VAL2') "Server Name 2",
extractvalue(xmlcol,'/system/softwareVersion/VAL1') "Software Ver 1",
extractvalue(xmlcol,'/system/softwareVersion/VAL2') "Software Ver 2",
extractvalue(xmlcol,'/system/transactionName') "Transaction"
from myXML
where extractvalue(xmlcol,'/system/deviceName') IS NOT NULL

Thanks

can you post sample data and expected results?

are you asking to have the xml results modified with an extra child node? or an extra column or what?

I am looking a way to add the extra column "scn.test_id" field added to the xml query.

I'm not sure how to create a regular query with the xml query and pull in more data.

what is the correlation  between them?

your xml comes from this table:  test_element_compr_field_diff

your test_id comes from these tables:  test_set_e & test_sceen


your first query references diff, but I don't see a clear connection.

please post sample data and expected results

Sorry for the delay.  I'm having problems gathering data today - we're having problems with the database.
 

The xml is coming off of a blob field in the field diff.test_elem_diff_related_fld_nm that you can see in the second part of the data.  

The following may be better to understand.

select
scn.test_id,
diff.test_elem_diff_related_fld_nm
from
test_set_element left,
compare_result pair,
compr_field_diff diff,
test_sceen scn
where
pair.test_elem_compr_left_side_id = left.test_id
and scn.test_id = left.test_id
and diff.test_elem_compr_rsult_ID = pair.test_elem_compr_rsult_ID
and pair.run_id = cr.run_id

I'm going to close this up because I cannot gather the data for now.  We are in development and the database that I was using is undergoing major changes and I cannot provide you with what is needed.  Thank you for trying.

I appreciate the points but if I my posts weren't helpful and you're unable to pursue it further at this time then I recommend deleting the question.

My "trying" is sort of irrelevant.

If, I was helpful though, even if you can't implement things quite yet, then we can leave it as is.
