Hi All,

recently I came across a requirement to merge two Queries where the values of one of the merged dims had leading spaces.

Values from Query 1 dim was :

id            value   

“123”     1

“345”     2

“567”     3

and the values from Query 2 was

id               dim1

”   123″      a   

“345”         b

” 567″        c

Simply merging this dimensions will lead to the following values for the merged dim

merged id

”   123″

” 567″

“123”

“345”

“567”.

How to get the merged values as

“123”

“345”

“567”

and use the other objects from the Queries like ?

merged id     val     dim_det

“123”           1           a

“345”           2           b

“567”           3           c

Steps :

1 – merge both queries on [id] onto [merged dim],

2 – create a dimension variable [final merged dim] = Trim([merged dim]),

3 – create a detail variable for [dim],  [dim det] = Trim([dim]) whit associated dimension = [final merged dim],

4 – use [final merged dim], [val] and [dim det] on your report.
