Merge Queries vs. Append Queries

Advantages over VLOOKUP:

  1. Handle Speed & Volume: Can work on >1 mn rows
  2. Expand the table to give multiple output-columns in the same step unlike VLOOKUP
  3. Can do concatenated VLOOKUP – e.g., Lookup with 2 columns – ‘Region’ & ‘Cust_Type’
  4. Multiple JOIN Types such as – Left Outer, Inner, Full Outer
  5. Fuzzy Merge for spelling differences (Jerry M. Campbell vs Jery Cambell)
  6. Can do reverse lookup unlike VLOOKUP

Common Blunders – Unwanted extra rows generated:

  1. PQ is case sensitive
  2. Using Duplicate IDs while doing Merge Queries (Cartesian Product)
