Hi @jnn4282 

Under the Home tab click transform data -> hold CTRL and left click on all of your date columns (Jan-Dec) -> Right click and select unpivot columns.

Hi @jnn4282 

It seems like pivoting the acc_title column has caused some mismatch data types. Could you please take a picture of your PL table.

Hi @jnn4282 

Unfortunately, I am unable to view the data in your report as the data source is coming from your hard drive (DataSource.Error: Could not find a part of the path)

Could you please take a picture of your PL table from within the transform data view.

Hi @jnn4282 

I've managed to figure out where the errors are coming from. If you click tranform data and in your PL table scroll to the far right until you find the Net Profit column. Right click the column and select remove errors (These rows won't matter as it seems like there is no data stored for these rows so they have no value).

Click apply and close and your data should load without any errors now.

Hi Seanan,

Thank you for your prompt response. Month and Value were fine with this way. But my desired result is as per the excel pivoted sheet. Please download it and see it for me. I want Acc_Title as the header

Hi @jnn4282

After unpivoting the month columns, click on your acc_title column and select pivot column (under the home tab in transform data), set the values column to the value column containing the monthly numbers and set the advanced options to "Don't Aggregate". This will then give you the result you are looking for.
