  • I came across below link while search this on goggle. It seems to me that it is possible to have the join between two custom list. I have question here, is it feasible performance wise? It seems to me that linq will first fetch the data in memory and perform the join which doesn't seem correct to me. Please provide me your suggestions.

                            City = cust.City,
                            CustomerCountry = cust.CustomerCountry,
                            JoiningDate = cust.JoiningDate,
                            OrderTitle = ord.Title
                dataGrdCustomer.DataSource = x.ToList();
