I have two tables I want to merge in power query:
The first table has two colums; a column of partial direct debit bank references, and a second column showing the accounting code each relates to.
My second table is essentially a bank statement including a column with the full direct debit references.
My aim is for power query to reference the first table, indentify if any of the partial references exist in the bank statetment full references, and then return the accounting code in a new column accordingly.
Any help appreciated.
