Hello


We have made the following query:

SELECT [HDTicket_Id]
	  ,[HDTicket_Identifier]
	  ,[HDTicket_Subject]
	  ,[HDTicket_Assignee_Benutzer_Id]
      ,[HDTicket_Customer_Benutzer_Id]
      ,[HDTicket_Created]
      ,[HDTicket_Modified] 
      ,[HDTicket_Closed]
      ,[HDStatus_Name]
FROM [macom].[dbo].[dt_HDTicket] 
Join [macom].[dbo].[dt_HDStatus]  
on HDTicket_HDStatus_id=HDStatus_ID
 
Join [macom].[dbo].[Benutzer]
on HDTicket_Assignee_Benutzer_Id=id

where HDTicket_IsClosed = '1' And HDTicket_Closed >= Dateadd(WW, -1, getdate()) and HDStatus_HDProject_id = '7' and HDStatus_Name <> 'Duplicate'

Open in new window


The 2 fields "HDTicket_Assignee_Benutzer_Id" and "HDTicket_Customer_Benutzer_Id" are linked to the table dbo.benutzer's filed ID.

We want to display columns of "HDTicket_Assignee_Benutzer_Id" and "HDTicket_Customer_Benutzer_Id" to display the filed "usersname" from the table dbo.benutzer


Thanks in advanced for the help

Hi.

Is the issue that you have two different dbo.benutzer.ID values? If yes, you will want to have two JOINs. I will show with INNER JOIN, which is appropriate if you must have two valid ID values in HDTicket. If there is a chance one or both of the fields are NULL (i.e., no match), you should use a LEFT JOIN.

SELECT b_c.usersname AS Customer, b_a.usersname AS Assignee
FROM [macom].[dbo].[dt_HDTicket] t
JOIN [macom].[dbo].[Benutzer] b_a ON t.HDTicket_Assignee_Benutzer_Id=b_a.id
JOIN [macom].[dbo].[Benutzer] b_c ON t.HDTicket_Assignee_Benutzer_Id=b_c.id

I hope that helps! The key is the alias to remove ambiguity between the usersname values.

I think the intention above was as follows:

SELECT b_c.usersname AS Customer, b_a.usersname AS Assignee
FROM [macom].[dbo].[dt_HDTicket] t
JOIN [macom].[dbo].[Benutzer] b_a ON t.HDTicket_Assignee_Benutzer_Id=b_a.id
JOIN [macom].[dbo].[Benutzer] b_c ON t.HDTicket_Customer_Benutzer_Id=b_c.id

aliases differ in the following, but the intent is exactly the same:
SELECT -- please add the correct aliases to all fields referenced
      [HDTicket_Id]
    , [HDTicket_Identifier]
    , [HDTicket_Subject]
    , t.[HDTicket_Assignee_Benutzer_Id]
    , t.[HDTicket_Customer_Benutzer_Id]
    , ag.usersname AS Assignee
    , cu.usersname AS Customer
    , [HDTicket_Created]
    , [HDTicket_Modified]
    , [HDTicket_Closed]
    , [HDStatus_Name]
FROM [macom].[dbo].[dt_HDTicket] as t
INNER JOIN [macom].[dbo].[dt_HDStatus] as st ON t.HDTicket_HDStatus_id = st.HDStatus_ID
INNER JOIN [macom].[dbo].[Benutzer] as ag    ON t.HDTicket_Assignee_Benutzer_Id = ag.id
INNER JOIN [macom].[dbo].[Benutzer] as cu    ON t.HDTicket_Customer_Benutzer_Id = cu.id
WHERE HDTicket_IsClosed = '1'
    AND HDTicket_Closed >= Dateadd(WW, - 1, getdate())
    AND HDStatus_HDProject_id = '7'
    AND HDStatus_Name <> 'Duplicate'

Thanks, @PortletPaul! That was a copy and paste error for sure.
