I’m building a step into an existing Method Directive BPM.
The validation error I received (see attached screenshot) was concerning the incompatibility of comparing a System.Int32 value (DMRHead.DMRNum) with a System.String value (UD06.Key1).
These are primary key values that connect the two tables, and there are no issues anywhere else in the system (BAQs, dashboards, screens, SQL server queries) when joining on these two columns.
How can I work around this issue? There’s no way to join the tables without these values connecting so I’m stumped as to how to go forward. Even if I wrote custom code to try and join the two tables, the data incompatibility issue may arise.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get around this issue?
What I’ve done that seems to work is to create a variable intKey1 of type Integer. Then use a Set Argument/Variable widget to set that variable with Convert.ToInt32(ttUD40Row.Key1)
Then use that as a table condition in the Condition’s Query.
If you’r starting with the DMRNum and need to see if a matching UD06 record can be found, the your variable would be a string (say strDMRNum), with the Set Arg/Var widget as Convert.ToString(DMRHead.DMRNum)
Then you can use that as criteria to limit the UD06 table records
Thank you so much Calvin! This worked perfectly!
The only thing I changed was the column I used in the DMRHead table; instead of PurPoint I used DimCode, which was not used in our application.
