Can you match a column based on an approximate match

I see three options here:

Try to create a common column that you can use for the join by using a binning function on your time column. Make sure to use a transformation for this column, not just a simple calculated column. Otherwise you can't use the column for the join.

Make a full join of your tables. Create a calculate column for your condtion. Then add one more transformation to create final table by filtering to your condition.

Write a data function for the approximate or overlapping match. For more information check my answer in the following link:https://community.spotfire.com/questions/common-data-periods
