Hi Alan

Actually I already working the whole weekend at this issue. Hopefully it will be fixed today or tomorrow.

I have not heard of people for which it is a break point, but it can definitely be useful if working which large or realtime datasets.

Have fun

Maybe we're straying a bit from the topic at hand... Should we fix the Windows build to support PSQL? 

My point is that I don't see much use, but clearly Philip Curran sees a use. And John's answer seems pretty emphatically in favor of the feature.  So, if it's missing from the Windows version, that sounds like a problem.

You could do that with a single select statement (albeit a complicated one).
You would need to use an inner join and an additional where clause.

I would recommend creating a view and the join in the view.

For big data  and realtime data the use of a database looks a good idea to me.

Have fun
