Parameters - Merge Page

DAT dat - Specifies the path to DATs to be merged. Can be used in conjunction with the operator's wired inputs.

How how - - Sets how tables are merged together.

  • Append Rows row - Merges tables together by adding rows from subsequent tables to the first table. If the By Name option is used, then data from subsequent tables will be added to the column with the same name, and the first row will not be added. If the subsequent tables have more columns than the input table, they will be appended.
  • Append Columns col - Merges tables together by adding columns from subsequent tables to the first table. If the By Name option is used, then data from subsequent tables will be added to the row with the same name, and the first column will not be added. If the subsequent tables have more rows than the input table, they will be appended.
  • Collapse Columns collapsecol - Merges tables together by concatenating all cells in a row into one single cell. You will have one column and one or more rows at the end.
  • Collapse Rows collapserow - Merges tables together by concatenating all cells in a column into one single cell. You will have one row and one or more columns at the end.
  • Collapse Cells collapsecells - Merges tables together by concatenating all cells together. You will have one single cell at the end.
  • Replace Cells by Column repcolcells - Replaces data in the first table with data in subsequent tables, matching by row names. Data from the last table will always be used.
  • Replace Cells by Row reprowcells - Replaces data in the first table with data in subsequent tables, matching by column names. Data from the last table will always be used.
For example, if your first input table is
 Name          Species	  Age				
 Birch	        Ferret	  6			
 Diefenbaker	Ferret	  4			
and you have two more input tables in the order
 Name          Species	   Age				
 Birch	        Ferret	   5			
 Diefenbaker	Wolverine  5				
 Name          Species	  Age				
 Birch	        Ferret	   6			
 Diefenbaker	Otter	   10			
your output table will be
 Name          Species	  Age				
 Birch	        Ferret	   5

By Name byname - Specifies if you are appending columns and rows by name.

Concatenate with spacer - Allows you to separate the cell data with a string when concatenating. The default is a space.

Append Unmatched unmatched - If the subsequent tables have rows or columns that are not found in the first table, these will be added to the output.
