Create Discrepancy Report from Different Tables

I've been working on this project to help point out any potential issue on payroll and I am having a hard time coming up with a solution.

 

I have 3 seperate tables that stores data related to a person, what they did for a day, and how it was accounted for in seperate systems.  Theoretically speaking everything SHOULD match between all 3 tables but in the event it doesn't I want a report to point that out for me.

 

Here is a sample of the datasets.

 

Assignment Table

  • There can be multiple 'Work Performed' per personID per day
  • If there are multiple assigments and depending on the 'Location Level 2' there is an "expected" amount of hours payed
    • For example, if personId has two specfic "Work Performed" and their Location is Location A then Pay Amount should be "X
  • I would have to create a calculated column based on the above scenarios to come up with this "Pay Amount" column

Payroll Table

  • personID will match multiple records in the Assignment Table
  • There will be one record per Earn Date per personID
  • Hours should match the calculated column 'Pay Amount' in Assignment Table

Secondary Data Table

  • The assignmentID will match an assignmentID in the AssignmentID
  • There could be more than one record for each AssignmentID
  • In the event there is more than one, we can SUM them
  • The SUM of Hours per assignmentID should match 'Hours' in payroll table, and 'Pay Amount' from Assignment Table

The end goal is

  • To see any discrepancies between the hours in all 3 tables
  • If there is a discrepancies I need to see what the 'Work Performed' was

I know there is alot of information here and I am forgetting alot but I am here to answer any questions.

Re: Create Discrepancy Report from Different Tables

@thmonte,

What is your expected result based on the above sample data?

I note that there is no matched personID in the first two tables. And you have many-to-many relationship among the three tables, do you create other bridge tables containing unique personID and unique AssignmentID to estabilish relationships among these tables?

Lydia

Re: Create Discrepancy Report from Different Tables

@v-yuezhe-msft I do have a few other tables to create relationships

 

One table of unique personID

One table of unique Date

 

I do not have a table of unique AssignmentIDs but I suppose I can make one?

 

With that being said,  the sample data was real data stripped of sensitive information.  I did not create it with the intent of it actually producing results.
