Join two tables via a common variable

Hi,

I am trying to append 2 tables by tying the 2 together by the Employee ID column. I am new to Power BI, am I doing something wrong?

 

I want the Gender and Level information (pic1) to be added as new columns into the Awards sheet (pic2) to show this info linked via Employee ID.

 

How can I do this? Many thanks!

Hey,

 

you can achieve what you are looking for by "merging" columns from one table into the other.

 

This Blogpost explains it very good, I think:

Hopefully this gets you started.

If your Employee ID column has unique values in first table then power will directly create relationship in two tables.

 

You want append or join? please eloborate more

I would like the gender column and level column info seen in the employee info sheet to be added into the Awards list data, showing the relevant info there.

 

E.g. employee info - Employee ID: 1234, Gender F, Level 4

 

Every instance in the Awards list where there is Employee ID: 1234 I want to see in the gender / level columns there, F and 4.

 

Hope this explains.
