(Left, Right) OUTER JOINS IN FM 12?

Post

Is there any way in FM 12 to do Left Outer Joins, for example?


Say I have a customer table joined to an orders table. I want to list all customers whether or not they have associated orders.

 

The FM join way as I've read about it is only an Inner join. Therefore, in the case I described above, I'd miss all the customers with no orders!

 

There has to be a good way around this, right?

 

Since this is now version ... 12 of the product, I'm guessing there's a good way to do something as basic as Outer Joins...

 

Is this a case where I'd have to write a script or does FM support Outer Joins like other databases do now?

 

Thanks in advance.
