How to put in order column sequence in a table ?

Hi,

 

using UNION(table1, table2) I noticed that if columns are not on the same order ... it is a problem, bacause union mixes values of columns with the same name but in a different order.

Is there a way to change the columns' order in a table? It seems it is fixed. 

 

Thanks a lot!

Francesco

@Francesco

You can try SELECTCOLUMNS.

 

Table =
UNION (
    SELECTCOLUMNS ( Table1, "column1", Table1[Column1], "column2", Table1[Column2] ),
    SELECTCOLUMNS ( Table2, "column1", Table2[Column1], "column2", Table2[Column2] )
)

Hi @Francesco

 

Have you played with the "Sort by Column" feature?
