Combine
Returns the result of combining two specified tables into a single table.
Usage notes
When Combine Rows is 0, the result contains the columns from Table 1 followed by the columns from Table 2. Each result row consists of the nth row from Table 1 followed by the nth row from Table 2. If Table 1 and Table 2 have a different number of rows, trailing result rows are padded with cells that are contain 0 or the empty string.
When Combine Rows is 1 and Ignore Column Names is 0, the result contains the rows from Table 1 followed by the rows from Table 2. The result table contains the column labels from Table 1 followed by the column labels that appear only in Table 2. In the result table, 0 or the empty string appears in cells that are in rows from one table and in a column that appears only in the other table.
When Combine Rows is 1 and Ignore Column Names is 1, the result contains the rows from Table 1 followed by the rows from Table 2. The result table contains only columns that appear in both Table 1 and Table 2.

Table 1: Table to be included in the combination operation.
Table 2: Table to be included in the combination operation.
Combine Rows: Numerical value that determines whether rows or columns are merged. When Combine Rows is 0, the result contains the columns from Table 1 followed by the columns from Table 2. When Combine Rows is 1, the result contains the rows from Table 1 followed by the rows from Table 2.
Ignore Column Names: Numerical value that determines which columns are included in the result. When Combine Rows is 1 and Ignore Column Names is 1, the result table contains only columns that appear in both Table 1 and Table 2.When Combine Rows is 1 and Ignore Column Names is 0, the result table contains the column labels from Table 1 followed by the column labels that appear only in Table 2. This argument is ignored when Combine Rows is 0.
This function returns a table.
