How to Join two Tables with common Unique ID in DisplayForm. So, that all fields from both the tables must be visible in that DisplayForm.

I am Having 2 tables in SQL Server like:

Table1: PROJECT_DATA(PROJECT_ID, CUSTOMER_NAME, PROJECT_NUMBER), where PROJECT_ID is Auto-Generate ID

Table2: TASK_DATA(TASK_ID, PROJECT_ID, TASK_NUMBER, MOTOR_DETAILS, TEST_DATE), where TASK_ID is Auto-Generate ID
Now, In Screen1, I am Saving EDITFORM1 where its Datasource Property is set to PROJECT_DATA(CUSTOMER_NAME, PROJECT_NUMBER) Table.

In Screen2, I am Saving EDITFORM2 where its Datasource Property is set to TASK_DATA(TASK_NUMBER, MOTOR_DETAILS, TEST_DATE) Table.

Note: I am also Saving PROJECT_ID from Table1 to Table2 when EDITFORM2 is saved.

In Screen3, I am having a TaskGallery Where in its (Title, Subtitle and Body) I am having (TASK_NUMBER, MOTOR_DETAILS, TEST_DATE), When NextArrow in TaskGallery is selected it navigates to Screen4.

 

Now my Issue is, In Screen4 I am having a DisplayForm, where its Datasource Property is set to TASK_DATA(Table2) But I also want to show respective (CUSTOMER_NAME, PROJECT_NUMBER) from Table1 with the help of respective PROJECT_ID in Table2.

Can anyone help me how to join two tables with its common unique ID in DisplayForm.

Hi @Chandu ,

 

You can either add another DisplayForm on the same screen, and set its Item property to:

Lookup('[dbo].[PROJECT_DATA]',PROJECT_ID=DataCardValue1.Text)

Where DataCardValue1 is the label control name in the PROJECT_ID field data card of TASK_DATA display Form.

 

Or, you can unlock all the data cards inside TASK_DATA display Form, and insert new controls to display data (CUSTOMER_NAME, PROJECT_NUMBER) from PROJECT_DATA. The formulas should be something like:

Lookup('[dbo].[PROJECT_DATA]',PROJECT_ID=DataCardValue1.Text).CUSTOMER_NAME
Lookup('[dbo].[PROJECT_DATA]',PROJECT_ID=DataCardValue1.Text).PROJECT_NUMBER

Mona

Lookup('[dbo].[PROJECT_DATA]',PROJECT_ID=DataCardValue1.Text).CUSTOMER_NAME
Lookup('[dbo].[PROJECT_DATA]',PROJECT_ID=DataCardValue1.Text).PROJECT_NUMBER

 

I followed the above Solution. My requirement is working now. But, getting error at CUSTOMER_NAME Datacard Default Property: Thisitem.CUSTOMER_NAME. Same error with PROJECT_NUMBER Datacard Default Property: Thisitem.PROJECT_NUMBER from PROJECT_DATA.

 

How to remove that Error for better performance of the app.

Hi @Chandu ,

 

You shouldn't use the columns from PROJECT_DATA for the data cards, as the data source of this display form is actually TASK_DATA. If you do not want to see the fields' value of TASK_DATA, you can just set the Visible property of these controls to false.

Hi @v-monli-msft,

you said that: unlock all the data cards inside TASK_DATA display Form, and insert new controls to display data (CUSTOMER_NAME, PROJECT_NUMBER) from PROJECT_DATA

 

insert new controls means, for PROJECT_NUMBER, I should take TASK_NUMBER from TASK_DATA and formula should be something like: 

Lookup('[dbo].[PROJECT_DATA]',PROJECT_ID=DataCardValue1.Text).PROJECT_NUMBER
