Add table for each row in another table

I have two tables, Dates and Contracts:

Date
01/01/2020
01/02/2020
01/03/2020

 

Contracts
CT1
CT2
CT3

 

How can I join them like this?

DateContracts
01/01/2020CT1
01/01/2020CT2
01/01/2020CT3
01/02/2020CT1
01/02/2020CT2
01/02/2020CT3
01/03/2020CT1
01/03/2020CT2
01/03/2020CT3

Try Cross Join function

CROSSJOIN(
VALUES(TABLE1[DATE]_,
VALUES(TABLE2[CONTRACTS)
)

If you have a Dates and Contracts table as shown, in the Dates table, simply add a custom column in Power Query, then type =Contracts as your formula. It will initially look like this:

You an see the formula above just references the Contracts table. (if your table has a space in it, it would be ...each #"New Contracts")

Then just expand the Contracts column.

Hi, @BlackBird 

 

Based on your description, I created data to reproduce your scenario. The pbix file is attached in the end.

 

You may create a calculated table as below.

Table = 
GENERATE(
    'Date',
    'Contracts'
)

 

Result:
