# How to combine two tables using sorted common variable?

I have 2 datasets "Data_A" and "Data_B"
a = load('data_A.mat'); a = a.data_A;
b = load('data_B.mat'); b = b.data_B;
I have one common variable "time" (the first column in both tables) in ascending order. I want to make another table which has the combined effect of time in data_A and data_B and the corresponding variables sorted in with the indices of the sorted 'time' variable. I tried to make union but union does not allow repitition. I can show what I desired in the screenshot I made in excel sheet below (excel sheet is attached too):
I shall be thankful for the help.

You could use OUTERJOIN:
a = load('data_A.mat'); a = a.data_A
a = 10×5 table

hi,
i will try. it definitely can be more automated, i made it semi-automated, but it works! hope i helped!
well, i tried. Stephen was faster, his solution is much more elegant, less engineering, more Matlab.
A = A.data_A;
B = B.data_B;
% creating a new table, with time only, sorted
t = sort([A.time; B.time2]);
T = table();
T.time = t;
% find indexes of the numbers from table A and add their values
[val, idx] = intersect(T.time,A.time);
T.x(idx) = A.x; % create column X and add values from X to corresponding rows
T.y(idx) = A.y;
T.z(idx) = A.z;
T.Eng(idx) = A.Eng;
% now do the same for table B
[val, idx] = intersect(T.time,B.time2);
T.L1(idx) = B.L1;
T.L2(idx) = B.L2;
T.D_legacy(idx) = B.D_legacy;
T.str(idx) = B.str;
% display the table (scroll-wheel to inspect it all)
disp(T)
