Create Table from a number of lists that act as columns

Hi,

This forum post explains how to create a table from a list and specify the column name;

and this useful blog by @Rickmaurinus explains how to create tables based on adding rows. 

 

However, I am looking to create a table by glueing columns together where each column receives its value from a given list. 

Example, say that I have two lists of 5 elements each, 

  • listA = {"A" .. "E"}
  • listB = {1 .. 5}

By using Power Query functions and the above lists as input, how can I obtain the following table? 

 

ID1ID2
A1
B2
C3
D4
E5

 

I have tried variations on the following: 

Source = Table.Combine(
Table.FromList(listA,Splitter.SplitByNothing(),{"ID1"}),
Table.FromList(listB,Splitter.SplitByNothing(),{"ID2"})

)

 

However, Table.Combine( ) works only by adding rows together, so the above throws an error. 

No doubt that there is an easy and elegant way forward, but I can't seem to find it.
