How to summarize text values of a column?

Hi there, 

 

I am looking for a way to summarize text values in a column. I am getting data from MS Project Server that looks like this:

[Resources] 1-* [Assignments] *-1 [Tasks]

So multiple resources can be assigned to one task.

 

In my report on the other end, I want to have a table that's like this:

Task1 | Bill, Joe | ...

Task2 | Rose | ...

 

In the moment I get this:

Task1 | Bill | ...

Task1 | Joe | ...

Task2 | Rose | ...

 

How can I group the results by task? I tried to create a custom column but couldn't find a solution with DAX etc. so far...

Thank you in advance for any help!!

Add a measure like this

 

m = CONCATENATEX(table, Table[emp], ",")

Drop task and this new measure in a table visual and you will get the expected result.
