The selected columns: 'Field1', 'Field3'

 

These input tables:

    +--------------------+   +--------------------+

    |      TABLE 1       |   |        TABLE 2     |

    +------+------+------+   +------+------+------+

    |Field1|Field2|Field3|   |Field3|Field4|Field1|

    +------+------+------+   +------+------+------+

    |     A|     B|     C|   |     D|     E|     F|

    |    AA|    BB|    CC|   |    DD|    EE|    FF|

    |   AAA|   BBB|   CCC|   +------+------+------+

    |  AAAA|  BBBB|  CCCC|                    

    | AAAAA| BBBBB| CCCCC|

    +------+------+------+

 
...we obtain:

    +-------------+

NOTE:

The columns of the different input tables can be in different orders.

The meta-type of each of the selected columns must be the same inside all input tables.

The sort order of the input tables is lost.

NOTE:

If each of the input table is sorted in the same way, you can use the clip0092 MergeSort Action (instead of the clip0093 Append) to obtain a sorted table as output.
