I need to be able to convert two existing columns and create a new table.

Any guidance greatly appreciated

Hi,

The following M code will solve the problem

```let
Source = Excel.CurrentWorkbook(){[Name="Table1"]}[Content],
#"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Source,{{"Mode", type text}, {"Outcome", type text}}),
#"Duplicated Column" = Table.DuplicateColumn(#"Changed Type", "Outcome", "Outcome - Copy"),
#"Pivoted Column" = Table.Pivot(#"Duplicated Column", List.Distinct(#"Duplicated Column"[#"Outcome - Copy"]), "Outcome - Copy", "Outcome")
in
#"Pivoted Column"```

Hope this helps.

You can refer to below formula to achieve your requirement.

```Summary =
SUMMARIZE(
'Sample',[Mode],
"A",IF(CONTAINS(FILTER('Sample','Sample'[Mode]=EARLIER([Mode])),'Sample'[Outcome],"a"),"a"),
"B",IF(CONTAINS(FILTER('Sample','Sample'[Mode]=EARLIER([Mode])),'Sample'[Outcome],"b"),"b"),
"C",IF(CONTAINS(FILTER('Sample','Sample'[Mode]=EARLIER([Mode])),'Sample'[Outcome],"c"),"c"),
"D",IF(CONTAINS(FILTER('Sample','Sample'[Mode]=EARLIER([Mode])),'Sample'[Outcome],"d"),"d")
)```
