Append

table 1table 1
table 2table 2Table 1Table 1

Hope you are having a great day, I just wanted to ask you that I’m doing a sports analytic dashboard but when I’m trying to append my tables. I get a lot of nulls which don’t exist in both table. The tables both have same column numbers and rows as well. See the below screen shots. Tried looking at spellings too but didn’t work. If you can help me move passed this  problem, I will be highly appreciate that.

@Muizz you column names have to be exact. Here is your issue:

  1. Table 1
    1. Home Team
    2. Opposite team
  2. Table 2
    1. Team
    2. Opposite Team

So Home Team and Team columns need to be the same. Rename in Table 2 to Home Team.

Opposite team and Opposite Team need to be the same case, so rename Opposite team in table 1 to Opposite Team.

 

That should clear the issue up.

Tables are appended based on column names (case sensitive). 
so, if table 1 has columns A,B

and table 2 has columns B,C

the appended table will have columns A,B,C and columns A and C will only have data from one table, hence they will have many nulls
