Find Records that Don't Have a Match in Both Tables


This video covers the ANTI JOIN. This occurs in SQL when two tables returns rows from the first table where no matches are found in the second table. It's consider the opposite of a semi-join when in two tables the result returns rows from the first table where one or more matches are found in the second table. In this example an anti-join is finding records where there's no match between both tables. However in Excel Power Query, there is not anti join option when using the merge feature. However the workaround in to use the left and right anti join features and then append the results. Confused? Well check out the video to see how it could be done.

Lookup Two Tables to Bring Back Matches in Both

We are basically looking for matching records from two tables and only those records that have a common field ( or key) are brought back in a results table. In INNER JOIN comes from SQL and it's among the different join types available. It's nice that it comes with Power Query so you don't need a fancy database like Oracle, SQL Server or MySQL.
