Last Modified: 2016-01-23
Hello Experts,

I have two tables: MaterialT_1 and MaterialT_2

Date            M1            Grp1            Grp2        Grp3
11/29/2015      10            AA            BA            CA

Date            M2             Grp1            Grp2        Grp3
11/29/2015      2            AA            BA            CA
11/29/2015       4            AB             BC             CC            
11/30/2015      15            AB            BC            CC      

I have joined then in a view like this:

I would like to join these two tables in a view so the results look like this:

Date               M1             M2            Grp1            Grp2        Grp3
11/29/2015      10            2            AA            BA            CA
11/29/2015      0            4            AB            BC            CC      
11/30/2015      0             15            AB            BC            CC

Does anyone know how to do this?
