How to merge tables in Notion
To merge tables in Notion, you first have to export the content of a table as Markdown & CSV. Then, you'll have to import the CSV file with the content of the second table into the main table.
Having the situation where you have more than two tables that you want to merge, in Notion?

How to merge tables in Notion
It's really easy merging tables in Notion. Let's see the steps that we have to follow in order to combine two Notion tables!
1. Export as Markdown & CSV
The very first step implies looking for the tables that you want to merge. Once you've found the table that you want to merge, click on the "Open as full page" button.
The table that you've just opened as a full page should now expand and cover all of your screen.
Now you want to click the three-dot icon in the top-right corner of the page and select the "Export" button.
Upon clicking that button, you will see a new pop-up on the screen. You'll have to select the "Markdown & CSV" option.
Regarding the rest of the settings, we suggest leaving them as they are.
Lastly, make sure to click the blue "Export" button. Notion will start downloading a ZIP file containing the CSV file with your table.
Make sure to unzip the file so you could reach that CSV file!
2. Import the table into the main one
Now you have to go to the primary table - the one in which we're going to merge the CSV file with the second table.
Go to the primary table, and hit the 'Open as full page' button, just like you did with the previous table.
Expand the three-dot menu in the top-right corner of the page so you could reach the setting which lets you import the second table into the primary one.
Now, you'll have to go to the "Merge with CSV" button, right below "Export".
Upon clicking the "Merge with CSV" button, Notion will open your library of documents, and you'll have to find and select the CSV file that was previously downloaded.
We'd like to mention it again - you first have to unzip the .ZIP file with the table so that you'd reach the .CSV file, which is the one that you need to upload in Notion.
Then, you'll have to wait a few seconds, and you should be able to see the contents of the two tables being merged into one.
In this image below, you can see how the content from the second table is added right below the content of the first table.
That was the whole process of merging two Notion tables. Pretty easy, wasn't it?
