Hello All,


I'm submitting my solution for implementing SCD-2. Please refer the attached  diagram below. I'm doing a equi join on the Stage and target table. For the first time load, I'm taking the left outer dataset and inserting into the target. Then I'm using MD5 function to generate a checksum for all the qualifying columns on stage and target table. If the records match then using the Checksum of stage and target , Upsert is decided.

Super fun problem.

Love the odd joins

Got there in the end. Dealing with Bob was the main hurdle. 

Not sure how well this would work with removing other records such as Bob.

Yikes - I definitely could have done this more efficiently!

8 - Asteroid

Got it!
