Linking 2 different tables with 1 same column ?



I have a situation that I don't know how to deal with; I hope that you could point me in a good direction.

I have 2 different tables where they have one same column, but each file contains thousands rows. For example
Table 1:
Column 1 - Column 2

a - x

a - y

b - y

b -z

c - z


Table 2:

Column 1 - Column 3

a - m

a - n

b - o

b - m

c - m

c - o


They share column 1. How can I link those 2 tables ? In other words, I want to have a chart showing the results of Column 2 from Table 1, Column 3 from Table 2. How can I do that ? And I also want to divide Column 2 by Column 3.


I'm thinking about appending the tables, i.e. adding Table 1 and Table 2 together. Does the appending work if their column structures are different ? Is that a good approach or it's better to leave the 2 tables independant ?

Thank you for your help.

Re: Linking 2 different tables with 1 same column ?

Hi @zzzzoooo ,

You'd better share the logic between these two table, then we will know how can they combine. In your scenario, there are many duplicate data in the column1, how will the column 2 and column 3 match? If the data in column 1 is single, we can use lookupvalue() function to get the result.

Best Regards,
