I need to define a condition comparing two attributes, such as in a Person table find all people living where they were born.

Suppose a have a table T with two attributes A and B: how can I retrieve records having A=B in a Selector Unit (or A>B, ....)?

In your example your date is like this:

ID | A | B

01 | 1 | 1

02 | 3 | 2

03 | 2 | 2

04 | 4 | 5


And you can get A = B, you need get the row 01, 03?

Hi Pablo,

yes I have to retrieve rows 01 and 03. I don't know how to achieve this modeling conditions in a selector unit. It's trivial in SQL: select * from table where field1 = field2.

I usually adopt a partial solution: model a calculated derived attribute C as A-B, and add a condition C = 0 at the selector unit.

However, it works fine with some data types such as integers, but it does not work fine with strings. Besides, the result is not a clear and undestandable model.

Hi, in this case it's better if you use the Query Component, in this way you can write a SQL or HQL query as you want.

The main drawback in the sql component is that you can not pass the results to another component. 
You can do the following: 
Perform the query using a script component whith your query 

Or easier, create a calculated derivation that will generate a view, obtaining the oid when the fields are equal, where Self.oid self.a = Self.B. Of which you are going out alone the oid in which the two fields are equal, regardless of what type they are.

Actually the Query Component has the output parameters, you have to create one parameter for each element present in the select condition

Other option is create an inmemory table and load data format to use with an normal selector. You need previously transform your data.

Actually the Query Component have a output parameter, but only you pass one result.

For example, I consulted the user table, but I want to get all the resulting oid, 1,2,3,4,5 .... in the link. The result is only one oid, corresponding to the record.
