Magento join EAV collection with Flat table

Joining tables in Magento when it comes to EAV with Flat table is quite complicated. Consider you want to join sales_flat_order table with customer EAV tables to get Customer’s firstname and lastname, it becomes difficult as customer’s name comes from customer_entity_varchar table.

Below code will join sales order flat table with customer EAV to get customer’s full name in the collection along with all the order details.

$coll = Mage::getModel('sales/order')->getCollection();

$fn = Mage::getModel('eav/entity_attribute')->loadByCode('1', 'firstname');
$ln = Mage::getModel('eav/entity_attribute')->loadByCode('1', 'lastname');

$coll->getSelect()
    ->join(array('ce1' => 'customer_entity_varchar'), 'ce1.entity_id=main_table.customer_id', array('firstname' => 'value'))
    ->where('ce1.attribute_id='.$fn->getAttributeId()) 
    ->join(array('ce2' => 'customer_entity_varchar'), 'ce2.entity_id=main_table.customer_id', array('lastname' => 'value'))
    ->where('ce2.attribute_id='.$ln->getAttributeId()) 
    ->columns(new Zend_Db_Expr("CONCAT(`ce1`.`value`, ' ',`ce2`.`value`) AS fullname"));

print_r($coll->getData());

$attribute = Mage::getModel('eav/config')->getAttribute('catalog_product', 'color'); //here, "color" is the attribute_code
$allOptions = $attribute->getSource()->getAllOptions(true, true);
foreach ($allOptions as $instance) {
    $myArray[$instance['value']] = $instance['label'];
}
Mage::log($myArray);

You will get list of all colors in an array called “myArray” in value => label format.
