Power Query - how to use the values of a column as headers for new columns

Hello Community,

 

Hope you are well.

 

I need your help with the below problem that I face.

 

The below example table shows, for each project, the monetary value it will generate and the benefit category it belongs to. Finally, each benefit category is further allocated to a specific type. Unfortunately, based on the way the table is extracted, the values of the "hard" benefits are grouped under one column. 

 

I would appreciated if you could help me with sugegsting a way to edit the extracted table in such a way, that it would eventuallly result in the second table (the valuye each hard category to be under the corresponding hard benefit column).

@Anonymous , one way is unpivoting, in that you will lose the second column. may you keep a copy of that?

Another way is you create calculated columns.  In Dax

new column = if([col] ="Finance",[Value],blank())
