Create a logical with the keys you need to perform the join.  Concatenate
the two fields to one 18 character.  Then you can join away.

Subject: ODBC SQL for joining a file with 2 key fields and one with 1
key field 


I have third party application software where the location master file has
two fields for the key.  The first field is 16 alphanumeric and the second
field is 2 numeric.  The other files that reference this location master
file has a single key of 18 alphanumeric.  The problem is I need to link to
the location master file to get the most important information, address.
Our users have a report writer using ODBC to access these files on the
AS/400.

Does anyone know how or if I can join these files?  All responses will be
appreciated.  Thanks.
