        Creates a task iterator for merging two data tables.
        sourceTable - The source table where the data to be be merged comes from
        targetTable - The target table where the data will be merged to
        sourceColumnsList - The list of columns in the source table that will be merged to the target table
        sourceKeyColumn - The key column in the source table that will be used to merge the columns in that table to the target table
        mergeColumnVirtual - Tells whether the new merged column will be virtual (true) or not
        mapToNetworks - Tells if the target table will a network data table(true) or unassigned table(false)
        selectedNetworksOnly - Tells if the merge is going to be on selected networks(true) or to a network collection (false)
        networkList - The list of networks to merge the data if the selectedNetworksOnly and the mapToNetworks flags are true
        rootNetwork - The root network of the chosen network collection to merge the data
        targetJoinColumn - The key column in the target table data to be used for merging the data
        tableType - The type of the table where the data will be merged, in case the source table is merged to a network data table
        a task iterator of type TaskIterator.
