Hello All,
I have a query as below:
select KeyIdentifiers.GPIDrugGroup, facname,reorders.RoNo,LastRxNo,Qty,dayssupply,reorders.ndc,
cutoffdt,DrugLabelName,patlname+', '+PatFName PatName,p.NsID,bed,room,PhName
,d.ExpandedSig,reorders.lastfilldt,reorders.OrigDt,REORDERS.CutoffDt
 from Reorders 
left join KeyIdentifiers on reorders.NDC  = KeyIdentifiers.NDC
left join Facilities on Reorders.FacID = Facilities.FacID
left join Patients p on reorders.PatID = p.PatID and reorders.FacID = p.FacID
left JOIN "FwReports"."dbo"."vwReorderDirectionsExpandedSig" d on Reorders.RoNo = d.RoNo and reorders.PatID = d.PatID
where reorders.FacID in('292')and (KeyIdentifiers."GPIDrugGroup"='57')
and
(reorders.CutoffDt is null or reorders.CutoffDt >GETDATE()) 
order by PatName

Open in new window

Is there any way I can innerjoin the following with the keyidentifiers only  something like below:
INNER JOIN "FwReports"."dbo"."GPIDrugGroups" "GPIDrugGroups" ON "KeyIdentifiers"."GPIDrugGroup"="GPIDrugGroups"."GPIDrugGroup"

Open in new window

and in my select I be able to select GPIDrugGroups.groupname along with other fields

What have you tried so far, what errors are you getting?

Is FwReports a different database?

If so I would try something like:

INNER JOIN FwReports..GPIDrugGroups FwDG ON KeyIdentifiers.GPIDrugGroup = FwDG.GPIDrugGroup

Open in new window


And then use the following in your select statement

FwDG.groupname

Open in new window


to pull out the groupname.

this is an innerjoin between keyidentifiers and gpidruggroups and not the selection table re-orders.so can I just write
select KeyIdentifiers.GPIDrugGroup, facname,reorders.RoNo,LastRxNo,Qty,dayssupply,reorders.ndc,
cutoffdt,DrugLabelName,patlname+', '+PatFName PatName,p.NsID,bed,room,PhName
,d.ExpandedSig,reorders.lastfilldt,reorders.OrigDt,REORDERS.CutoffDt
 from Reorders 
left join KeyIdentifiers on reorders.NDC  = KeyIdentifiers.NDC
INNER JOIN "FwReports"."dbo"."GPIDrugGroups" "GPIDrugGroups" ON "KeyIdentifiers"."GPIDrugGroup"="GPIDrugGroups"."GPIDrugGroup"
left join Facilities on Reorders.FacID = Facilities.FacID
left join Patients p on reorders.PatID = p.PatID and reorders.FacID = p.FacID
left JOIN "FwReports"."dbo"."vwReorderDirectionsExpandedSig" d on Reorders.RoNo = d.RoNo and reorders.PatID = d.PatID
where reorders.FacID in('292')and (KeyIdentifiers."GPIDrugGroup"='57')
and
(reorders.CutoffDt is null or reorders.CutoffDt >GETDATE()) 
order by PatName

So long as you are happy that there is a definite match in fwReports for every entry in KeyIdentifiers and it won't falsely restrict your results set then yes, you should be able to perform that join.

Why you could not use [] insted of ""?

INNER JOIN "FwReports"."dbo"."GPIDrugGroups" "GPIDrugGroups" ON "KeyIdentifiers"."GPIDrugGroup"="GPIDrugGroups"."GPIDrugGroup"

should be like below

INNER JOIN [FwReports].[dbo].[GPIDrugGroups]  AS GPIDrugGroups
ON [KeyIdentifiers].[GPIDrugGroup]=[GPIDrugGroups].[GPIDrugGroup]

It would have to be a left outer join rather than an inner join, it would then return nulls for records where there was no match.
