I suppose you could read the two in separately and then use join(1)

Unless you want to Sample id to be part of the Category label (or number),
I don't believe that this is possible. You may want to create a raster
map and reclass it (change Category label to Sample id). Then, if you
ever to get both the label and Sample id from one query, you could overlay
the two.
