Build a Custom Column with two values for Year

I am trying to build a custom column that will give two year values for each row. Essentially repeating each row and ending with 2019 for the first row and 2020 for the second row.

The final goal would have two rows for each hotel name:
HotelName                                   Year
aloft Birmingham Soho Square    2019
aloft Birmingham Soho Square    2020
aloft Chapel Hill                            2019
aloft Chapel Hill                            2020 
etc....

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

what you are trying to achieve can not be done in Power BI directly, you will have to make use of Power Query.

 

1. Create a table with the years you need, by using the "Enter Data"-function in Power Query. Call it e.g. Years.

2. In your Hotel-table, use the "Add Custom Column"-function, and add the Years-table. It will not be visible in the pop-up window, so you will have to manually type the name.

3. You will now see a new column labled Years(or whatever you called it), with a small Expand-button in the header of the column. Click on this, and voila.
