How to make one table's column connect to another table's column even if the names of the two columns are different?

Hi,

Can you please provide further information about where do you want to do this? If you have access to the script, the most recommended is renaming both fields in their corresponding table. If that's not possible or you want to work with a data island, there are some other ways to do that, using conditionals, set analysis, macro...

Regards.

You need to rename one of the columns like in this example:

OrderLines:

Load OrderID,

LineNo,

ItemNo,

...

OrderHeads:

Load ID As OrderID, // Renaming this column to make the tables connect

Date,

CustomerNo

....
