Hi @Anonymous 

Thanks for reaching out to us.

here is the solution,

Text.Combine( List.Select(Record.FieldValues(Record.FromList({[Column1],[Column2],[Column3]},type [Column1 = text,Column2=text,Column3=text])),each _<> "" and _ <> null),"," )

Code in Advanced Editor

let
    Source = Table.FromRows(Json.Document(Binary.Decompress(Binary.FromText("i45WSlTSUQKiZKVYnWgQIwWIU8GcVCArHSQbGwsA", BinaryEncoding.Base64), Compression.Deflate)), let _t = ((type nullable text) meta [Serialized.Text = true]) in type table [Column1 = _t, Column2 = _t, Column3 = _t]),
    #"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Source,{{"Column1", type text}, {"Column2", type text}, {"Column3", type text}}),
    #"Inserted Merged Column" = Table.AddColumn(#"Changed Type", "Merged", each Text.Combine( List.Select(Record.FieldValues(Record.FromList({[Column1],[Column2],[Column3]},type [Column1 = text,Column2=text,Column3=text])),each _<> "" and _ <> null),"," ))
in
    #"Inserted Merged Column"
