# join tables by categorical variable

I want to join two tables with indices of type categorical. However, I get an error.
I can convert both indices to string, then join, and then convert back to categorical again, but that seems ludicrous.
a = table(categorical(["a", "b", "c"]'), [1:3]')
b = table(categorical(["a", "b", "d"]'), [4:6]')
join(a,b,'Keys','Var1')
Gives "Left and right key variables 'Var1' and 'Var1' have incompatible types."

Turns out that my Matlab installation was corrupted, causing the mis-leading error message I received. After re-installation the error message changed and with using innerjoin instead of join on Akira's suggestion the code executed without errors. Thanks.

Please try innerjoin or outerjoin functions, like:
c1 = innerjoin(a,b,'Keys','Var1');
c2 = outerjoin(a,b,'Keys','Var1','MergeKeys',true);
These outputs are as follows:
>> c1
c1 =
2×3 table
Var1 Var2_a Var2_b
____ ______ ______
a 1 4
b 2 5
>> c2
c2 =
4×3 table
Var1 Var2_a Var2_b
____ ______ ______
a 1 4
b 2 5
c 3 NaN
d NaN 6

As long as the categoricals are not ordinal, the different categories should not matter. If they are ordinal, the categories must be the same, with the same order.
But in any case, the OP says, "Turns out that my Matlab installation was corrupted, causing the mis-leading error message I received."
