Add columns from one input to another

Asteroid

Hi!

 

I am working with a workflow that has two inputs. One of the inputs contains about 15 columns, but of these only 3 need to be added to my other input. I am wondering if there is a way to add these 3 columns to the other input? The append fields tool does not seem to be what I am looking for as it acts as a Cartesian join. Is there another way to do this?

 

Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

Hi @grsomer,

 

If the rows line up correctly in advance, you can just do a RecordID on both datasets, and then join on the RecordID.

 

Hope that helps,

John

Hi @grsomer 

 

@JohnJPS is correct as usual, though his methodology is not as streamlined as possible.  If the rows line up, you can simply Join on Record Position without needing the RecordIDs
