How to union 2 collections without common field

I have 2 collections that I would like to join to together(Term and Definitions).  1st collection only has Terms: Earth, Sun and the 2nd has Definitions.  Their order is in sync.  The 1st item in the Terms collection matches the 1st item in the Definitions collections.  Their are no duplicates.  How can I union them?

Re: How to union 2 collections without common field

Hi @rarroyo1 

 

You can combine two collections using:
Clear(FinalCollection);With({records:Concatenate(Terms.Value,"%",Definitions.Value)},ForAll(records,Collect(FinalCollection,{Terms:First(Split(Result,"%")).Result,Definitions:Last(Split(Result,"%")).Result})))
 
Hope this Helps!
