DAX - Create a new table that repeats the value based on another column

Dear PBI users, good morning.

 

I need a help with this issue, I would like to create a new table using dax that would repeat the value of another column based on another. To exemplify:

 

Current table:

 

ProductPallet Quantity
A3
B2

 

Desired Result:

 

ProductPallet Quantity
A1
A1
A1
B1
B1

 

How can I do that in DAX?

 

Thank you in advance!

Table 2 = 
    SELECTCOLUMNS(
        ADDCOLUMNS(
            GENERATE(
                DISTINCT('Table'[Product]),
                GENERATESERIES(1,MAXX(FILTER('Table',[Product] = EARLIER('Table'[Product])),[Pallet Quantity]),1)
            ),
            "Pallet Quantity",1
        ),
        "Product",[Product],

Is there a way that I could include Indexes as well? 

For example 

 

Product - Pallet Quantity - Index

A            - 1                       - 1

A            - 1                       - 2

A            - 1                       - 3

B            - 1                       - 1

B            - 1                       - 2
