Hello,

 

I Have a data set which has 2 Ids values: ID1 and ID2. I would like to set a flag for all the records where ID2 in ne record is ID1 in another record and vice versa.

 

ID1  ID2  FLAG
A       B       1
B       A       1
C      G      0
E                0
F      H       0

 

 

Any Idea ?

 

Thanks

KC

thank you it worked. I was thinking about a loop or an array but this is easier.
