Transform two columns and a table

I have two columns (or it can be a list) with the same number of rows. I would like to create a table that has the two columns (or lists) combined as in the example in the image. Which function or step should I follow?

You can start a new blank query and use Table.FromColumns to get your result

 

= Table.FromColumns({Name[Name], Age[Age]})

 

It needs a list of table names.  You can create a list from a query column with the syntax above - QueryName[ColumnName]

@mahoneypat ,I haven't used Table.FromColumns yet and it solved my case perfectly. Thank you.

 

@MattAllington I'm also using List.Zip, but this step does not solve it. Thank

Add an Index column in Power Query to both columns. (Both should start from the same number e.g.1)

Merge the tables using an Inner Join.

Personally, I would use List.Zip. Make sure both are lists first.
