Counter on values

Hi all,

 

I'm rather new to Power BI and I would like some help with creating a counter. The first time a value occurs in a column, I would like to have value "1", the second time it occurs value "2", and so on.

I know how to do this in Excel but not in Query Editor. Hopefully someone can help me out.

 

Greetings.

I think this blogpost by Reza Rad might help you get to your solutions:

 

https://radacad.com/create-row-number-for-each-group-in-power-bi-using-power-query

 

It uses an index with a group by function. The explanation is easily written and you can just follow the steps replacing the example columnames by the column names in your data.
