please clarify if you want to "append" the 2 data tables or if you want to do indeed a "SQL Join" ...

anyhow, first one is to be found easily by checking the Merge method of the datatable.
second one is "easily" with Linq statements, though other methods exists.
of course, if the underlying data is coming from the same database, you could indeed think about doing the "join" in sql directly...

you use a dataview and datarelation object to do so, see here for the starting syntax:

It would be useful to have the tables structure. Do you want INNER or LEFT join?

The query will be something like:

select *
from Table1 as T1
INNER join Table2 as T2
ON T2.CommonField = T1.CommonField
