Hi @Anonymous !

 

I believe the easiest solution in Power Query would be to split the column by delimiter, unpivot the new column to rows and then create a custom column with the name values.

 

Split column by delimiter: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/split-a-column-of-text-power-query-5282d425-6dd0-46ca-95bf-8e0da9539662

Unpivot columns: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/unpivot-columns-power-query-0f7bad4b-9ea1-49c1-9d95-f588221c7098

 

Hope it helps!

 

Kind regards,

OD
