Hello everybody,
I have two table variables, and would like to join them.
After comparing 1st column to 7th column of df3 and df4 variables,
if the row from 1st to 7th column is exactly same, then I hope to add the test2 column of df4
into dfcombine variable.
Please give me some helps.... == does not works of table type.
load input03.mat
dfcombine = df3;
for i=1:height(df3)
ind = find(df3(i,1:7)==df4(:,1:7));
dfcombine(i,9) = df4(ind,8);
end
I hope to make the dfcombine variable as below picture.

I think one of the issues is the nan in the data, the result of nan == nan is something for philosophers :)
Anyhow, see below for a procedure to merge the tables as desired. The idea is to ignore the nan and empty values during the comparison.
load(websave('myFile', "https://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/answers/uploaded_files/1132800/input03.mat"))
% have a look at the content of df3

You are doing () indexing on a table. The result would be a table row. You compare that to something else that is probably a table. But two tables can only compare if the variable names are the same... which we do not know to be true.

Thank you very much for your comments. Yes, you are right. It is the table and I was only possible to compare the variable name.

For comparing something with logical, table need to change to array
see as below:
clear all ; close all; clc;
load("input03.mat")
for i = 1:height(df3)
for j = 1:7
for k = 1:height(df4)
if sum(j == [5,6])
checker(k,j)=sum((df3{i,j}==df4{k,j}),1);
else
checker(k,j)=sum(strcmp(df3{i,j},df4{k,j}),1);
end
end
end
if sum(sum(checker,2) > 5) % if no nan value - change to 6
test2(i,1) = df4((sum(checker,2) > 5),8);
else
test2(i,1)= {NaN};
end
end
dfcombin = [df3,test2];
