DAX to pull in data from another table

I have a 2 tables of data containing event dates but I need to combine them together into a single column.   What I would like to do is create a column of data combining both dates into this column.

 

So effectivly if Event Date in Table 1 = Blank then use Event Date in Table 2.

 

There would never be dates in both columns so they would never overlap.

 

I was thinking this would be best done in PowerQuery but I could be wrong.  If someone could please advise that would be great.  Happy to provide screenshots of the tables in question etc...

Hi there!

I would suggest doing this in Power Query as it is more powerful for modeling. This can be achieved by selecting the two columns you need to merge, right clicking on one of them and selecting "Merge Columns"
