Combine two tables with similar column headings together

Hello everyone,


I have various tables loaded in my Power Bi file. I am trying to merge two tables, sales and leases, into one since they have same column headings. Both have a 'Listing ID' column which contains unique values. I tried the 'merge' within PQ but all it does is give me additional columns from the second table. I tried append also but that somehow nullifies the listing IDs of the second table.


Is there a way that I can do this? I did combine the two files in excel but for the sake of ensuring data update, I would prefer to do it from within power bi.


I am pasting snippets of both files below, if that helps. There are hundreds of other columns extending to the right in each table.






Thanks in advance

sorry mate, didnt quite understand you. if you are referring that i match listing ID columns in each table with each other, i did that too (also renamed both so they are exactly the same). 


Can you dumb down the explanation for me please?


Thanks again

PQ is case sensetive so "Listing ID" and "listing id" are not the same animals.
