List items not purchased by customer

Highlighted

Hi,

 

I have 2 lists of data.

 

1. List of customers' purchases

2. Full list of items

 

CustomerItemAmount
A1231
A4561
A7891
B1231
B4561
C7891
D4561

D

7891

 

Item
123
456
789

 

As you can see, customers don't purchase all items. How can I output the data to display each item across all customers such that items that aren't purchased display an amount of 0? Please note that I'm using the In-DB tools with data from SQL Server.

 

Expected result below with the new rows highlighted.

 

CustomerItemAmount
A1231
A4561
A7891
B1231
B4561
B7890
C1230
C4560
C7891
D1230
D4561
D7891

 

Thanks!

Hi @akasubi ,

 

Here is a workflow for the task.

Please use in-db stream-in and stream-out to integrate this.

We cannot build you a in-db workflow without us having the connection strings.

 

Hope this helps 🙂

 

If this post helps you please mark it as solution. And give a like if you dont mind 😀👍

I would suggest:

First use a summarise tool to get all the customer IDs

Then use an append fields tool to create a complete set

You can then join the purchase data to this complete set

The right output will contain the extra rows - using a formula tool to add a 0 for Amount

Next union the Join to this and you will have the complete set

Hi @akasubi,

 

I have build something similar to what @atcodedog05 has done.

Hi @atcodedog05.

 

Thanks for your suggestion. However I'm using in-db tools with data coming from SQL server. How would I do this using the in-db tools?

Hi @akasubi 

 

In the below workflow all the tool are available in In-DB tool palate too.

I have replaced append tool with join tool (cross join)

You will be able to replicate this with In-DB tools

atcodedog05_0-1602748393064.png

All joins are outer joins

 

Hope this helps 🙂

Hi @akasubi ,

 

Below would be what a solution with In-DB tools look like. I have attached a sample solution using normal tools, which you can use to translate to In-DB.

 

Hope this helps!

Hi @akasubi 

 

As @GaneshBo  mentioned my workflow would also translate to the same workflow with In-Db tools.

 

Great Job @GaneshBo in taking the extra efforts to create a temp table in your database and build the workflow 🙂

Without connecting to a db you wont be that successful in building an In-Db workflow because the columns wont populate 😅

Thank you to you both @atcodedog05 @GaneshBo, this has worked.

 

And actually everyone else who contributed!
