I have a FC and two tables:

I've joined from Test_FC to Test_Table via the ID fields.

I've also joined from Test_FC to Test_Table_2 via the ID fields.

Result:

Question:

This is what the Layer Properties >> Joins window looks like:

To be honest, I don't really know what I'm looking at in that diagram. The structure presented there isn't what I expected to see; I would have expected something like this (but more elaborate):

  • Test_FC
    • Test_Table
    • Test_Table_2

Is that diagram presenting the joins correctly? 

Thanks.

For my notes, Esri Canada support said this (case 03209739):


"Based on your workflow, the diagram does appear to be presenting correctly and I will try to break it down below:

  • In the diagram, each join performed has the Join information with the Source and Destination table. The source table would be your input table (Test_FC) and the destination table would be your join table (Test_Table) .
  • In the case of your first join, the diagram would look similar to this:

  • When the second join is added, the source table is the previously joined table above (Test_FC/Test_Table) and the destination table is Test_Table_2:

  • Expanding the source table here would display the first join details (first image above)
