Simple Left Outer Join........

Asteroid

HI,  

 

What is the easiest workflow to do a simple left outer join?

 

I have a data table :

 

IDCODE
1a
2a
3b
4b
5b
6c
7d
8e

 

a look up table :

CODEValue
aXYZ
bDEF
eKJL

 

 

And I require the following output :

IDCODEValue
1aXYZ
2aXYZ
3bDEF
4bDEF
5bDEF
6c 
7d 
8eKJL

 

Can anyone advise please?  

 

Many thanks!

Use the Join Multiple tool and join on Code. Leave "Only Output Records that Join from All Inputs" unchecked.

@fiorano,

 

You can use the Join tool and join on code. Then union the L and J outputs.

 

Best,

Hi @sjm

 

Thanks for the reply. This still only brings back records that are joined.....
