create table from existing table

Hi all. 

I'm getting used to DAX expressionswith columns, but not with tables. 

I want to create new table for waterfall chart. 

Here is the part of big table I have (1) and my target table (2). 

1.PNG          -->              2.PNG

 

Could you guys help me find the best way to do this?

Appreciate.

        Table1,
        "UNIT", Table1[UNIT],
        "DATE", Table1[DATE],
        "FACTOR", "A",

        "WEIGHT", Table1[FACTOR C]
    )
)

Or 

 

TableNew =
UNION (
    SUMMARIZECOLUMNS ( Table1[UNIT], Table1[DATE], Table1[FACTOR A], "FACTOR", "A" ),
    SUMMARIZECOLUMNS ( Table1[UNIT], Table1[DATE], Table1[FACTOR B], "FACTOR", "B" ),
    SUMMARIZECOLUMNS ( Table1[UNIT], Table1[DATE], Table1[FACTOR C], "FACTOR", "C" )
)

It can easily be done via the Query Editor, using Unpivot as illustrated in this video.

Specializing in Power Query Formula Language (M)

Actually, my columns are calculated columns, so Edit Query doesn't work here. 

Any ideas?
