Conditional replace text based on if the value is present in another column in the same row

Hi,

 

I'm having trouble using the Table.ReplaceValue function with a condition. 

 

I want to replace the values in one field (Print), with the values in another field (REPLACE Print), but only if the value on that row in the 'REPLACE Print' field is there. 

 

For example I have a lot of rows where I have a value in the 'Print' column which needs to be replaced with the new value in the 'REPLACE Print' column. But also some null rows in the 'Print' column which need to be replaced with the value in 'REPLACE Print' column.

 

Can anyone advise how I fix this formula, I want to minimise adding helper columns and instead do the whole task in the one step.

 

#"Replaced print" = Table.ReplaceValue(#"Replaced end use", each [Print], each if [REPLACE Print] = null then [Print] else [REPLACE Print], Replacer.ReplaceText,{"Print"})

 

Many thanks in advanced!

 

Best,

 

Dan

Hello!  Please give this a try...

= Table.ReplaceValue(#"Previous Step Name", each [Print], each [REPLACE Print] ?? [Print], Replacer.ReplaceValue,{"Print"})

This statement says exactly what you are trying to do.  The other difference between it and your script is that you had the replacer function as Replacer.ReplaceText (partial value) instead of Replacer.ReplaceValue (entire value).
