Merge one field into another

Hi all,

I am trying to move values from one field into another.  Currently I have my dataset looking like below:

This table is created by left joining on number with the pulling field being location2.

I want to move the values from location2 into the location field.  

   

NumberPalletLocationLocation2
11aaaLondon
11aabLondon
11aabLondon
2 Paris
22fbb Paris
22fbb Paris
22fbb Paris
33SabMadrid
33SadMadrid

Thanks,

Tom

If only one or the other will ever have a value, you can just do this

Location & Location2 as Location
