is there a way to calculate a field in a table from data in another table in SQL database?
the case is I have two tables in a database both have the same IDs, so I want to fill a column in one table from the a column in the other table.
i tried to write a code but it did not work as I'm still a beginner in coding.
if Charts_Limits['SURVEY_ID_REF'] == Survey_Limit_Polygon['SURVEY_ID_REF']:
Temporarily join the tables and calculate your field in the target table using the field in the join table. When done, remove the join.
As a note, if you are trying to update values in the target table, you can always make a query/selection prior to doing the calculation. Field calculations are only done on selected records
Can you put the two features into a relationship?
This SQL code works in a definition query for features in a relationship.
Table1 Table2 Table2 Table2
ORIGINFIELD IN (SELECT DESTINATIONFIELD FROM <RELATED NAME> where <FIELDNAME> <QUERY>)
I use it to show only points in a Dashboard that have an attachment associated with it. It may work with a SQL query for Labels.
