Merge Rows in Power Query RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I have an excel table like this,

    Name, Date1, Date2, Date3, Date...

    John, null, 3, null, null, 

    John, 1, null, null, null

    John, null, null, 4, null

    John, 3, null, null, null

    What I would like to do is merge the rows with a sum so I end up with

    Name, Date1, Date2, Date3, Date...

    John, 4, 3, 4, null, null

    Any help most appreciated.

  • You could also have solved it in PQ with a Group by statement. Select column "Name", then right-click, then "Goup  By...". 

    = Table.Group(#"Replaced Value", {"Name"}, {{"SumDate1", each List.Sum([Date1]), type anynonnull}, {"SumDate2", each List.Sum([#" Date2"]), type anynonnull}, {"SumDate3", each List.Sum([#" Date3"]), type anynonnull}})
