How to combine tables in Microsoft Excel, using Power Query


https://youtu.be/6fDy5VMTK7U
If you want to combine tables in Microsoft Excel, you can use Power Query to merge or append them. Power Query is a data transformation and analysis tool that allows you to connect to different sources of data, apply filters and transformations, and create queries. To use Power Query, you need to have Excel 2010 or later and download the Power Query add-in from Microsoft.

To merge tables, you need to create a connection to each table in Power Query. You can do this by selecting any cell in the table and clicking on From Table/Range on the Data or Power Query tab. This will open the Power Query editor, where you can rename the query and make any changes to the data. Then, you need to close and load the query as a connection only. You need to repeat this process for each table that you want to merge.

To append tables, you need to select one of the queries in the Queries list on the right side of the Power Query editor. Then, right-click on it and choose Append. In the Append dialog box, you can choose whether you want to append two tables or three or more tables. Then, you need to select the other queries that you want to append from the drop-down lists. You can also choose how to handle columns that are not present in all tables. After clicking OK, you will see a new query that contains all the rows from the appended tables.

To join tables, you need to select one of the queries in the Queries list on the right side of the Power Query editor. Then, click on Merge Queries on the Home tab. In the Merge dialog box, you need to select another query that you want to join from the drop-down list. Then, you need to select the columns that you want to use as join keys from both tables. You can also choose the type of join that you want to perform, such as inner join, left outer join, right outer join, or full outer join. After clicking OK, you will see a new query that contains columns from both tables. You can expand or aggregate the columns from the second table as needed. Microsoft Excel tutorial.
