Consecutive numbers

Hello,

 

Is there a way for PBI to extract consecutive numbers across columns and ignore the rest?

Hi @matrix_user ,

 

As far as I know, the calculation in Power  BI should be between columns. I think your requirement is to find extract consecutive numbers in same rows across columns. It is hard for us to achieve your goal based on this data model.

I suggest you to add an [Index] column in Power Query Editor and unpivot your [Item N] columns.

And I think you may need to add a column with looping. 

For reference: 

List.Generate() and Looping in PowerQuery
