Fail to append

Dear community,

 

I am facing problem appending several files with the same columns. One of which is that power BI is unable to recognise that the highlighted columns are the same and fail to append them. Could someone please assist me? 

 

Thanks!

Hi @andrewtan1993 

Do both of those columns have the same name?  Check for trailing space.

Please supply the source files (at least a sample) and the query you are using to merge.

@andrewtan1993 , 

Not clear, 

 

It's not append with the columns that you are ighliting, Append works with same cooumn structure of another table to this table.
