Remove nulls and move values up to one line

Hi everyone!
Yesterday a kind user helped me to transform every 4 rows into columns. 
But now I have to move up all the info of those columns up - remove nulls and transform the info to a line.

Please see the pic below:Sem título - Power Query Editor.jpg

For example, the first line would be 1234 / xyz / id / may-20

 

How can I do that?
I've tried to filter, but the other columns disappear. 
Also tried to fill up but I couldn't - I'm a newbie user..lol

Any tips? If so, would be great to know where to put the strings, etc... lol 😄

Thanks a lot! (L)

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

I went back to your initial post and believe that the solution provided by @edugoncalves  is not the best one, you can perform this without adding a column for each one and get a value per row.

 

Do the following:

  • On your original data add a Index Column

  • Add a custom column with the following syntax:

 

if [#" Column2"] = "Group" then [Index] else null

 

Use the name of the first value of your data in the IF part in this case you refer that is group.

  • Do a fill down on the nem column:

  • Remove Index Column
  • Do a Pivot by column two values without aggregating the column 1

Now you can delete the custom column.

 

@edugoncalves sorry for giving an option on top of yours but believe is much easier and effecient.

 

PBIX file attach.

In fact, this solution is much more straight and scalable than what I proposed.
Thanks for sharing, Miguel!
