MULTI_IN
Description

MULTI_IN returns true for all cases where one or multiple columns match any tuple of the match list. Returns false otherwise. The reverse is true for NOT MULTI_IN.

Syntax
 MULTI_IN ( (table.column, ...), (value1_1, ...), (value2_1, ...), ...) 
 NOT MULTI_IN ( (table.column, ...), (value1_1, ...), (value2_1, ...), ...) 
Supported types

Supported value types for the match list are STRING, INT, FLOAT, DATE.

Usage

MULTI_IN can be used in the following contexts:

Null handling

A match value can also be NULL. A NULL value matches with all cases of a column that are NULL.

Case sensitivity

Comparison of strings is case-sensitive.

Examples

[1]

Single column with tuples containing only one element. This is like the IN predicate.

Query

Column1

         CASE WHEN MULTI_IN ( ( "Table1"."Column1" ) , ( 5 ) , ( 4 ) ) THEN 1 ELSE 0 END
        

Input

Output

Table1

Column1 : int

1

Result

Column1 : int

0

[2]

MULTI_IN lets you match against multiple columns.

Query

Column1

         CASE WHEN MULTI_IN ( ( "Table1"."Column1" , "Table1"."Column2" ) , ( 5 , 6 ) , ( 1 , 2 ) ) THEN 1 ELSE 0 END
        

Input

Output

Table1

Column1 : int

Column2 : int

Result

Column1 : int

1

[3]

Column contains only integers and the tuples contain floats and integers. If a float and an integer represent the same value they match.

Query

Column1

         CASE WHEN MULTI_IN ( ( "Table1"."Column1" , "Table1"."Column2" ) , ( 5.0 , 6 ) , ( 1 , 2 ) , ( 3.001 , 4 ) , ( 7.0 , 8.0 ) ) THEN 1 ELSE 0 END
        

Input

MULTI_IN with dates and strings.

Query

Column1

         CASE WHEN MULTI_IN ( ( "Table1"."Column1" , "Table1"."Column2" ) , ( {t 946771200000 } , 'AA' ) , ( {t 1009756800000 } , 'AA' ) , ( {t 1245145600000 } , 'AA' ) ) THEN "Table1"."Column1" ELSE null END
        

Input

Output

Table1

Column1 : date

Column2 : string

Query

Column1

         CASE WHEN MULTI_IN ( ( "Table1"."Column1" , NULL ) , ( 1 , 2 ) , ( 3 , NULL ) , ( 7 , 8 ) ) THEN "Table1"."Column2" ELSE 0 END
