    Outer Join in World Writer

    How do you perform an outer join on two files in World Writer? It seems the only join we can do is an equal join.

    Sorry, you'll have to use Query for that.

    Only in my dreams can you do an outer join with WW. Sorry, not functional in WW but found in many other reporting packages and Query.

    You can try create Join file. And use this join file as base file for WW.

    Here is how to create Left Outer Join:

    How to Create a DDS Logical File that Produces the Results of an Left Outer Join


    This documents discusses how you can create a join logical file in DDS that produces the results of an Left outer join.
    Resolving The Problem

    If you would like to get the results of a left outer join for a join logical file, you can use the JDFTVAL keyword to get that result. By using the JDFTVAL keyword, you will get all of the records in the first file even if there is no match in the second file, and you will get all of the records that have a match from the second file. An example of how the JDFTVAL can be used is as follows:


    The following example shows how to specify the JDFTVAL keyword.

    |...+....1....+....2....+....3....+....4....+....5 ....+....6....+....7....+....8
    00010A JDFTVAL
    00020A R RECORD1 JFILE(PF1 PF2)
    00030A J JOIN(PF1 PF2)
    00040A JFLD(NAME NAME)
    00050A NAME JREF(1)
    00060A ADDR
    00070A BAL

    PF1 is the primary file and PF2 is a secondary file. You should assume that PF1 and PF2 have the following records:
    PF1 NAME


    PF2 NAME

    Anne 120 1st St. Anne 5.00
    Doug 40 Pillsbury Doug 6.50
    Mark 2 Lakeside Dr. Sue 2.00
    Sue 120 Broadway
