Many thanks for looking into this.
Basically I have a system table with columns (A,B,C,D) in the table 1 (meta data) with values in rows. Now I want to add some more data like alpha, Bravo to the same fields (A,B,C,D) but can't seem to find an exact way to do it.
Any help will be much appreciated.
Great overview. Whenever I need to explain the Join, Keep, and Concatenate commands to anyone who is learning QlikView or Qlik Sense scripting, I always showcase this post to highlight the different ways to transform tables. Thanks!
One point of clarification, while the Left Keep and Right Keep would show all the remaining "Key" index values, 1,2,3 or 1,2,4 respectively, in table boxes, the actual data is not as pictured above. In the left keep, Table2 will not have a value of 3 in the Key field, and in the right keep, Table1 will not have a value of 4 in the Key field.
To see this, load in the data, go to the Table Viewer, and then (in the case of the Left Keep) Preview data and you will see there is no value of 3 in this table. (as pictured below)
The values will show up in the front within a Table object due to the tables being linked on the Key field and the value of 3 still existing in Table1 (in the Left Keep case). I assume this is what is meant in the post, but pictorially above it doesn't quite send this message.
Absolutely one of the best explanations I've ever read. I've always come back to this anytime I need to explain the same concepts to someone or just to refresh my mind.
