    How do I join/blend data sets that are similar in nature?

    Robert de Jongh

      I am a beginning Tableau user.

      For our financial reports we have our monthly outlook files that contains data like:

      SBU Name

      Product Name

      Date

      Type (PO vs ACTL/OUTL)

      Volume

      COGS

      Revenue

      Version (the version of the outlook)

       

      All files have the same lay out. I want to be able to combine all these files into 1 data set, so I can compare what has changed outlook over outlook, do forecast accuracy calculations by comparing what the outlook was for Month 2 with the actual result for Month 2, etc.

       

      How do I blend/join these files so I can use them as 1.
