New Table/Reshaped Table grouped by date and keeping non-blank values for each column

Hi Folks,

 

I have a table recording the start and end time of each production shift every day. Given the system used to have the operators logging the time, the table is generated in a kind of "diagonal" way: for each day there are 4 lines (Start/End of the 2 shifts), but with only 1 non-blank column per day:

I need to reshape a table (or create a new one) with only one line per day and with the columns filled accordingly. The table can be generated either in DAX or in PowerQuery (either would work for the report).

I've tried with summarize and firstnonblank but no success so far 😞

 

Any hint?

Thanks for the support!

Regards,

Marco

Hi @MarcoGamba 

 

Here a solution in Power Query:

Here the code in Power Query M that you can paste into the advanced editor (if you do not know, how to exactly do this, please check out this quick walkthrough)

let
    Source = Table.FromRows(Json.Document(Binary.Decompress(Binary.FromText("hc5BCgAhCEDRu7QOxowZpatE97/GWLkpC8GFwcN+rQG+RwYBMUR5lAwFQFadFjcik1Z1Il2xEFUX0n/MemsQ8lvItKR3ayG/xZLZMm8Nwn4L+y3st1iytLQf", BinaryEncoding.Base64), Compression.Deflate)), let _t = ((type nullable text) meta [Serialized.Text = true]) in type table [Date_ShiftAdjust = _t, #"Day Start" = _t, #"Day End" = _t, #"Night Start" = _t, #"Night End" = _t]),
    #"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Source,{{"Date_ShiftAdjust", type date}, {"Day Start", type time}, {"Day End", type time}, {"Night Start", type time}, {"Night End", type time}}),
    #"Unpivoted Other Columns" = Table.UnpivotOtherColumns(#"Changed Type", {"Date_ShiftAdjust"}, "Attribute", "Value"),
    #"Pivoted Column" = Table.Pivot(#"Unpivoted Other Columns", List.Distinct(#"Unpivoted Other Columns"[Attribute]), "Attribute", "Value")
in
    #"Pivoted Column"

 

Let me know if this helps 🙂
