Creating a join from a lookup table

I have created a dataflow that joins two sets of data together, however when i join them together it's dropping data because it doesn't have anything to match with. How would i create a dataflow that would match all the data and any of the unmatched records would also stay?

    @Stan_Smith it sounds like you need to use a full outer join - this will find the matches between dataset 1 and dataset 2, but will also keep any unmatched records from dataset 1 and any unmatched records from dataset 2.

    You can search for SQL JOINs to understand the different types of joins. has a good infographic outlining how the different join types work that you can apply in your dataflow.
