3321779 - Expressions in subqueries inside LEFT JOIN are not evaluated - SAP IQ


After upgrade from IQ15.4 to 16.1, Rows containing (NULL) values are not evaluated when evaluating right table column values in a subquery within a LEFT JOIN.


 Select col1, col2, col_c, col_d from j01
   left join (select j02.col1 as col_c, if(j02.col2 IS NULL) then 'ABC' else 'TTT' endif as col_d from j02) j02a
          on j01.col1 = j02a.col_c ;

   col1 col2   col_c  col_d   
   1 abcd (NULL) (NULL) 
   2 abcd      2      TTT    

But SAP IQ 15.4 returned below output --  'ABC' is set to col_d in the first row.

   col1 col2   col_c  col_d   
   1 abcd (NULL)  ABC 
   2 abcd      2      TTT
