Split Column into multiple Columns and Rows

 

Hello,
I am trying to extract information from my email, using the exchange connector.

I need to extract the information that comes in the column "Body.Text", currently the information comes in the following structure

SubjectDateBody.Text
Mail110-03-2021ID
NAME
NUMBER
TYPE
001
Rodrigo
1234
Type A
002
Joe
3853
Type C
Mail211-03-2021ID
NAME
NUMBER
TYPE
003
Jeff
9573
Type A
Mail306-02-2021ID
NAME
NUMBER
TYPE
004
Bob
2253
Type A
005
Andy
8862
Type B
006
Bart
3321
Type A


But I need to transform the data to something with this structure

SubjectDateIDNAMENUMBERTYPE
Mail110-03-2021001Rodrigo1234Type A
Mail110-03-2021002Joe3853Type C
Mail211-03-2021003Jeff9573Type A
Mail306-02-2021004Bob2253Type A
Mail306-02-2021005Andy8862Type B
Mail306-02-2021006Bart3321Type A

 

I have been trying to use the "Split Column" option but I have not been able to create the "Table 2"

I would be very grateful if you could support me with this problem

Thanks !

Thanks to the great efforts by MS engineers to simplify syntax of DAX! Most beginners are SUCCESSFULLY MISLED to think that they could easily master DAX; but it turns out that the intricacy of the most frequently used RANKX() is still way beyond their comprehension!

DAX is simple, but NOT EASY!
