    Default Combine 2 tables

    Hi I have 2 payroll tables.

    MAIN and MGMT. They both don't contain the same fields, but do have common fields such as name, date rate...

    I currently paste the data from our payroll export into 2 tabs and pull them into power pivot and back down as pivot tables.

    But I would also like to combine the 2 tables into 1 for additional analysis.

    What is the best way to go about it. Use power query to combine? I would like to be efficient as the data will get large over time.

    I would like a MASTER table that has all staff and payroll info.

    Thanks

    I don't know structure and data type of your source tables but you can use PowerQuery with Merge or Append feature, then transform result as you wish to analyze the one you need
    I know you know but I forgot my Crystal Ball and don't know what you know



    In the first post, show the type of machine (PC / Mac) and the Office version you are working on

    I don't fully understand the question, but I would suggest you look into Power Query Merge or Append feature. Either of those would be your solution.
