Unique column values

Hi,

The FCFO table contains the CODCFO column where customer and vendor codes are recorded. Therefore, a relationship error occurs between the TMOV and FCFO columns because one of the columns must have unique values. Apparently the problem arises in the way records are written:
000001 - Customer A 000002 - Customer B 000001 - Supplier A 000002 - Supplier B
Code records are repeated for customers and vendors, causing the error. Through the query editor, I filtered only the clients, yet the error continues.
Could someone help me how to solve?
Grateful.

Re: Unique column values

Hi @Gelain,

 

How is the real data like? If it likes the sample you posted here, we could create two new table with these formulas. Finally we can create relationship. If not, could you please post a sample?

 

Customer =
FILTER ( 'Table1', LEFT ( 'Table1'[Name], 8 ) = "Customer" )
Supplier =
FILTER ( 'Table1', LEFT ( 'Table1'[Name], 8 ) = "Supplier" )

Re: Unique column values

Mm recognizable. Can you customize the data source? The easiest way is to add an unique ID/primary key.

Re: Unique column values

Hello,

 

The data source is SQL Server. Would you have any way to solve this problem?

 

Thank you.

Re: Unique column values

Do you have the permission to customize the SQL database? 

Add a new column to your table: http://www.1keydata.com/sql/alter-table-add-column.html

 

Add (and remove current PK) new PK & Auto incremental to the new column.

P.s. Test it first on a local/test SQL database.
