Could i get some help
I've imported data from a SharePoint list which incorporates a workflow. I am trying to create a report where i can monitor the status of items within the list. Several fields i want to show are showing as ID's...please see image below.. So instead of showing the actual values in the sharepoint list Power BI is showing numbers...how can i get it to display the actual value?
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance
thank you for the response!
the source data is a sharepoint list... the actual value is the current workflow status which has many values depending on the item status such as "manager approved, booking approved, booking declined" etc
i had a similar issue when trying to see which manager approved each list item but this solved by pulling the site o-data and linking tables
What I am asking is the data of the first step when importing data, whether it is displayed correctly? Can you show me a screenshot?
no so that is showing all the tables in the sharepoint site...when i go into the booking table the column i shows a mixture of null values and numbers(15,16,17,18 etc)- these represent the workflow status but im not sure how to change the numbers into "manager approved, manager declined" etc
For the information you have provided now, all I can say is that if you can't modify the wrong data before you get it, then it can't be recovered.
If the mixture of null values and numbers(15,16,17,18 etc) corresponds to the original data form, then you can modify it by customizing the column.
if [column]= 15,"manager approved",else if [column]=16,"manager declined", else if ...else ...
if ([column]= 15,"manager approved", if ([column]=16,"manager declined", if(...)))
