Combining two Collections of different columns

Hello Community,

Below is a mock of my Collection1

SId  ItemID  Desc    QtyNeeded

1        100    Water          2

2        106    Pen             6

 

I have another collection namely Collection2, which collects records after patched into a datasource.

TransID    UserName    Type   TransDate

12            John             Inv       9/25/2019

13           John              Inv       9/25/2019

 

The TransID is an auto generated column in the datasource. How do I add TransID to the Collection1? I'd like to add TransID to Collection1 and then Patch all records of Collection1 to another table in the datasource.

Can I acheive using Variables? Please help.

Re: Combining two Collections of different columns

Hi @Kitz 

 

Not sure if the approach is correct from a data mapping standpoint

 

But if you want to merge the 2 - assuming Sid is the unqiue key in collection 1 and defines the item index

 

then sid 1 will map to trans id 12

sid 2 - trans id 13 and so on

 

ClearCollect(col3, AddColumns(collection1,"TransID",Last(FirstN(collection2,Sid)).TransID))

 

where col3 is the new collection

 

collection1 - is your first collection with sid

collection2 - is your second collection with transid

Re: Combining two Collections of different columns

Hi @RezaDorrani ,

Yes, I need a collection in the format you have mentioned. Unfortunately, there is no link between the two Collections and the ItemCount won't be same.  Is there any way we can use variables to acheive this? 

Thanks!
