Creating a column to combine related record values

guyatisk_1-1699033983710.png

This represents a table that is a child of another master table.  The relation is EURID.  What I want to do is to combine two or more records into a field to represent Cost Centers.  In this example, the 1st record would stand on its own.  Then the other subsequent records would have values of: "570, 310", "711, 730", and then "711,730" respectively.  In the main power bi report, I can then display that column in a table for each employee.  Hope this makes sense.  I am sure I need to do something in the query itself.  Thanks for any help

@guyatisk you can achieve this by adding a measure:

 

Cost Center Measure = 
CONCATENATEX ( 'Table', 'Table'[Cost Center], "," )

Hi Parry.  I need to aggregate the data (or group) by Title and display the CostCenters as one value, delimited by commas.  So in the example above, the resulting dataset would be (titles are abbreviated):

 

TitleCostCenter
395dfffe0711
5b5efc65570, 310
c992fa93711, 730
dda0d4be711, 730
