    It’s possible that you’re running into an issue with how Google BigQuery automatically creates Partitions and Sharded tables. Every day, Google Analytics exports raw data to BigQuery and creates a new table, called a “shard.” These shards are part of the main ‘events_’ table, but they appear as separate tables when you view them in BigQuery. This could explain why your project appears to have been split into two tables even though they have the same name. If you are expecting single table, instead consider utilizing wildcard which enables you to query multiple tables at once. Remember to filter by the date, otherwise, costs could be high due to massive data. It’s always a good idea to review Google BigQuery’s documentation for common issues and best practices. If this doesn’t solve your issue, it might be worth reaching out to Google support for more in-depth troubleshooting.
