Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Merging data, part of Learning Microsoft Power BI Desktop (2016).
- [Voiceover] If you've been working along with me,…then this is the file that you saved at the end…of the last movie that I suggested you call Merge.…We'll be saving it one final time at the end…of this movie for work later with visualizations,…and we're going to use this related file now…to merge our queries together into one grand query…that puts together information about population…from the population tables as well as countries…and continents from all countries.…
The first thing I need to do is I wanna duplicate this…so I have a copy of all countries.…I just think that would be smart,…and so to do that, I need to go into the query editor.…Right click on all countries and let's duplicate it,…and I'll have all countries two.…That's the one I'd like to work with, then,…and I'm going to merge other queries into this.…So with all countries two selected, merge queries.…It says what would you like to merge into this?…I would like population by country,…and it says what columns, then, are related?…And you will remember from our relationships,…
