Splitting Product name from component list

Hi All,

 

Below I have a list of ingredients with the final product listed above them. What I'm trying to do is remove each row with the product name and create a new column which lists the relevant product for each ingredient. How do I do this? I've looked at unpivoting columns but that seems to split out all ingredients and products into new columns. 

Product names can vary a lot but can be identified when the 'Level' column is equal to 0, any other number under 'Level' is an ingredient or an ingredient of an ingredient. Also there are around 600 products with relevant ingredients in the list.

maybe you can use DAX to create a new table.

 

Table 2 = 
VAR tbl=ADDCOLUMNS('Table',"product",maxx(FILTER('Table','Table'[key]<=EARLIER('Table'[key])&&'Table'[level]=0),'Table'[Object Description]))
return FILTER(tbl,'Table'[Item No]<>0)

@ryan_mayu Thank you for this, your attachement seems to produce 'product 1' for all rows when rows 11-21 (key) should be product 2, is there a way to do this? Also some of the real product names don't have anything in common in their name so referencing to "Product" wont work, is there a way to reference Level or item number to 0? 

Thanks for your help so far!

Hi @ryan_mayu,

Thanks, this works but only for the first 5 products or so, then it just repeats out the 5th product for the rest of the 'product' column. However, I changed the product names from their actual ones to a more simpler 'product 1,2,3' etc and this works. Do you know why it doesn't work for the actual product names? I've a feeling its the maxx function.

Thanks
