Joining is where we take two Excel tables and merge the rows, side-by-side, using a common (‘key’) column. For example to turn:
(You can also merge tables one on top of another)
Excel doesn’t really support joining. One option is to write some VBA script to do this for you. Another is to import the data into a database and do an SQL join. But both these are time-consuming and require technical skills. However it is really easy in Easy Data Transform:
The Excel tables are now joined with the top input item columns on the left of the table. No need to ‘run’ anything. Easy!
For more details about Join options see the Join documentation.
When you are happy with the results you can output the transformed data to a new file in a range of file formats. Ensuring that the blue transform item is selected, click the To File button at the bottom of the Left pane to create a new output file (you might have to scroll down to see it). Select the file type you wish to export to.
If you need to join lots of Excel sheets you can do it in a single operation using the batch processing feature.
Join is just one of the 62 transforms that Easy Data Transform supports. Easy Data Transform allows you to combine multiple transforms to quickly and easily create complex data transformations. Easy Data Transform can process millions of rows and input and output in multiple formats.
