How to transform column to remove duplicates

Hi Team,

 

I wanted to request your help as I want to do the following, I have a table such as this one:

 

NameSkill
BobWriting
BobReading
BobSpeaking

 

What I want to do is to transform the table so that is provides the following result:

NameSkill 1Skill 2Skill 3
BobWritingReadingSpeaking

 

I've been trying to pivot the column but it doesn't give me the correct result. Any ideas?.

 

Thanks!.

Here you go. You need to reference your skills as a new table, remove dups, add index and merge back to original table. Was going to share the PBIX file but it wont let me.   This gif walks you through all the steps

Add an Index, then Pivot the Index column (with 'do not aggregate' option)

Hi @HotChilli 

 

Thank you for your response. 

 

I've created the index column and pivoted with the values from 'Skills', however, it's not providing the desired result. Maybe I'm missing a step.

 

Thank you for your help on this!.
