Combining Columns with overlapping data

I have a table that has overlapping data. How can I create one merged column whereby if there are blanks in one it takes the value from the other and if there are blanks in the other it returns the value from the other. Where the data overlaps it just returns the value.

 

When the data overlaps the values are the same. I am trying to do this through Query Editor.

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

 

Many thanks in advance.

 

Kind regards,

 

Alex

Hi,

 

just add a (conditional) column and create an if-statement kinda like: if [col1] = "" then [col2] else [col1]
