Yes, field->offset is calculated when table is opened and is never
Here is how the val_int_offset() function is declared:
inline longlong val_int_offset(uint row_offset)
You can use the same hack to address a field that is stored anywhere.

Why use join_tab->read_record?
This is a method for scaning rows (with or without an internal cache)
and shouldn't be used for accessing new/old values of rows.
(Especially as there is no guaranteed that this method is always used to
The record data is normally in table->record_buffer. The length of this
buffer is table->reclength.

To be able to help you we would need more information at which place
in the code you need access to the data for an old/new record.
