How to Implement Multi-way Join

Article #: Product: Version:

Summary

Join tasks in DMExpress are binary, meaning they can only take two sides - a left side and a right side - even if there are multiple sources on either side. A multi-way join takes more than two sides, and can be implemented in DMExpress by linking multiple binary join tasks together in a job.
