Transforming cities into provinces

Hi all,

 

Can somebody help me please. I am a starter at Power BI and I am looking for a way to transform Dutch cities into Dutch provinces.

 

Do I have to add a column to the excell file or is it possible to do this automaticly within Power BI

 

Regards

You cannot change Cities to Provinces, because Power Bi is not that kind of automate software to read your city and assign it to a province. You need manually enter the Province column and set it as Province data type.

Power BI can't convert the city to provinces automatically. You have to add another column to mention the provinces.

Then you can set the data category as state or provinces.
