Repeat this for each dataset that you want to include in the multi-dataset query. When all selections of data have been added, click View to see the combined data table.

Any common dimensions between the different datasets will be automatically combined. Other dimensions will automatically be displayed along the vertical axis, underneath section headings indicating their original dataset.
