Extension Update-

I have two data extension Data Extension "A" and Data Extension "B". i want to add the data of Data Extension "B" to Data Extension "A". Now the problem is - In Data Extension "A" there is a field (language) which store "FC" and "EC" value. and the Data Extension "B" the same field ( language) store the value fr-ca and en-ca. While adding the data into the Data Extension "A" and i want to convert the value from fr-ca to FC and en-ca to EC , then want to store into the Data Extension "A". any solution for this? Expert!


What you will want to do is a SQL CASE statement to conditionally change the value to insert into the DE based on a value from your source DE.

So it would be:

SELECT Field1,
           WHEN Language = "fr-ca" THEN "FC"
           WHEN Language = "en-ca" THEN "EC"
           ELSE "Default value" /* If needed */
       END as Language,
       CASE /* Added based off comment */
           WHEN Language = "fr-ca" THEN "QC"
           ELSE "Default value" /* If needed */
       END as Prov
FROM [yourDE_B]

/* Target: yourDE_A */
/* Action: Update */

  • I have another case - I want to change the value of another filed based on the language field. IF Language = fr-ca then set Prov = QC. ( Prov is another field) How I can do this? – Marketing cloud Geek May 12 '19 at 4:23
