Convert list with different types to table

Hi all

 

I have a list like

 

List
8
abc
2021.01.01 13:45:00
011010

 

How can I convert this list to a table? Is there a function or do I need to do it manually?

 

Should look something like

Valuetexttimebit
8abc2021.01.01 13:45:00011010

 

 

Since the source is a list, transforming options like pivot, unpivot are not available.

Trying to convert the list in a table "to table" results in errors, since each row is another type.

Fount the solution

 

When converting "to table" you have to choose as a delimiter "none".

After that it is possible to transpose the table.

@Anonymous , 

 

Try unpivoting using power query.

Since this is a list, options like unpivot are not available. I think I have to use dax.

@Anonymous , with the first table it seems like a case for transpose table or unpivot

The problem is, it is not a table, therfore transpose or unpivot are not available. it's a list.
