Hi Bill, 

Efrain, who works with me, says that both features "must" have spatial information to execute the join. Could you help me, please?

I have one feature with spatial information and a dynamic database with mi unique ID and no other spatial data.

Thank you

  Hi Manuel,


  Step 1: Load your SDF file.  Once you have loaded your SDF file, a feature source icon is visible in Studio's Site Explorer (the tree in the left panel).


  Step 2: Load your secondary feature source.  You can use Studio's File New Load Procedure. or File New Data Connection. to do this.


  Step 3: Open the SDF feature source (from step 1) by double-clicking on its icon in the Site Explorer.  In Studio's main panel, you will see 2 sub-panels.  The top one is titled "SDF Features".  The bottom one is titled "Join with other feature sources (optional)". Drag the secondary feature source icon (from step 2) from the Site Explorer into the tree view in the bottom panel.  Then use the bottom panel to select the columns that define the join.

  Hi from Mexico,


  We want to use an external database (secondary table) with a feature in sdf3 to make thematic maps (like in MapGuide 6.5), but we don't find how to do it in Studio. 


  Someone have an idea?


  Thank you
