Multiple SharePoint Lookup Columns Relationships

Hi all,

 

I am having trouble and was wondering if someone could please help and advise me. 

 

I have a SharePoint custom list which contains 5 lookup columns all of the same lookup, for example:

The issue I have is that all five lookup columns lookup to the same list, I know that in Power BI it is not possible to create relationships like so:

I am just wondering what the best way to work around this would be as I require to be able to build reports based on the lookup value. 

 

I have already tried a few different methods to get this working but so far had no luck. 

 

Appreciate any help and advice.

Hi @Adam13Hylo,

 

If we can combine the five columns into one, it will be easy to create relationship.

1. Open Query Editor;

2. Select the five columns with "Shift" or "Ctrl";

3. Click "Unpivot Only Selected Column".

4. Change column names if needed.
