Creating a new table in Power BI

Hello,

 

I'm new to the Power BI Desktop and I'm trying to create a new table that will have columns from the multiple tables I pulled in from my source. Could someone please help me with this? Example: I have a course table and Instructor table I need to bring certain columns from each table.

Hi,

 

It will be difficult to explain to you all that things.

Try to read this guide and to follow it, then if you have questions, come back here 🙂

I 'tried' following through the guide that you suggested and this appears to be a topic that is beyond that getting started set of pages.

Re: Creating a new table in Power BI

Hi @kwonder,

 

   if your tables have a relationship between them you can use the NATURALINNERJOIN function() or the NATURALLEFTOUTERJOIN function(). Something like:

New Table = NATURALINNERJOIN(Course;Instructor)

or

New Table = NATURALLEFTOUTERJOIN(Course;Instructor)

 

Or if you want something different you can use the query editor mode and "merge queries".

Let me know if it works.
