    Append two tables from different Excel files

      Esteemed Tableau Experts,


      I have this problem with joining information which I have spread out in different Excel files. In the concrete case:


      I have two Excel files with identical columns. Instead of merging them into one Excel file, I would like to analyze them jointly in Tableau. What I would like to to do is to append those two tables and save them as one extract to analyze them as if they were one table in one data source.


      I searched previous posts but it seems that I can only join tables which are in the same Excel file and there seems to be little possibility to actually append data. I hope I am wrong as I thought this to be a quite basic feature. Thank you in advance for your kind help and support!!!


      Best Regards
