To create table using distinct values and using the filter to remove blanks

I need to create a table from two tables by combining distinct values but at the same time using filter to remove any blank values

 

NEWTable1 = DISTINCT(UNION(VALUES(Table1[Dept_ID]), VALUES(Table2[DeptID])))

 

When it create this new table "NEWTable1", it needs to filter out blank values from Table1 and Table2 which have Dept_ID or DeptID blanks. So that the new column created from these two tables won't have any blank values.

 

Table1

A100
A101
 
A103
A104

 

Table2

B201
B204
B205
B205
 

 

 

NewTable1

A100
A101
A103
A104
B201
B204
B205
B205

Hi @RJS849,

 

Please try:

NEWTable1 =
FILTER (
    DISTINCT ( UNION ( VALUES ( Table1[Dept_ID] ), VALUES ( Table2[DeptID] ) ) ),
    [Dept_ID] <> BLANK ()
)

Hi,

 

You can solve it using thise code in the Query Editor

 

let
    Source = Table.Combine({Table1, Table2}),
    #"Filtered Rows" = Table.SelectRows(Source, each ([Codes] <> "")),
    #"Removed Duplicates" = Table.Distinct(#"Filtered Rows")
in
    #"Removed Duplicates"
