Searches two columns of a database table for a value and returns the corresponding value from another column in the same row. Similar to the DBLOOKUP function, except that it accepts two lookup values and fields.
DBLOOKUP2 ( SourceField1, SourceField2, "connection", "table", "lookup_field1", "lookup_field2", "substitution_field" )
|SourceField1||The value for which to search in the lookup_field1 column.|
|SourceField2||The value for which to search in the lookup_field2 column.|
|connection||The connection where this lookup table resides.
If the connection is Scribe Internal Database, the SCRIBE user must have at least SELECT privileges on the lookup table.
|table||The name of the lookup table.|
|lookup_field1||The name of the column in the lookup table that stores the first value to search for.|
|lookup_field2||The name of the column in the lookup table that stores the second value to search for.|
|substitution_field||The name of the column in the lookup table that stores the value to return.|
Note: This function requires special handling when working with bulk operations. See Using Bulk Operations for more information.
Useful for substituting full values for codes or vice versa.
To optimize performance, if DBLOOKUP2 is called again with the same parameters, it returns the same result (without performing another lookup).
