Combine/Merge multiple Data sources

Hi everyone,

 

I am struggeling with the follwoing issue:

 

I have 3 Data sources with identical column names but different data which I want to display in an output field with corresponding relations in Power BI:

 

This looks like that:

Different Column names

 

After that I want to create a table which can diplay corresponding data from all data sources:

Also important is, that I can display different relations inside this table when I click other charts. I ve tried Combine data sources with full outer join but did not get any data inside the new created table.

 

Do u have an idea how to solve this?

 

Thx in advance!!!

I don't have much detail of your situation but combine the tables should work using merge and append features in Query Editor, retry it: https://www.excelinppc.com/merge-vs-append-in-power-bi-in-power-query-editor/

 

Or if you are connecting to 3 excel/csv files, I would suggest you to try get data from folder step by step:: https://radacad.com/power-bi-get-data-from-multiple-files-in-a-folder-on-onedrive-for-business-no-ga... .
