Custom column

Hello everyone,

 

i'm just a beginner with power query so i'm not sure how to solve this issue i have.

I'm looking to add a custom column where if the weight value is zero then it should take the average weight of all products with the same code on that exact date.

 

for example:

DateProduct codeweightCustom Column
1-sep12340average weight based on product code date 1-09 = 1
1-sep123411
2-sep123422
2-sep12340average weight based on product code date 2-09 = 2
3-sep123411
3-sep123422
3-sep12340average weight based on product code date 3-09 = 1,5

 

is this possible in power query or should I approach it differently?

 

thanks in advance

I think you want the average of the non-zero entries for the same date.

Here's what I would do:

Duplicate the query.

Filter out the 0 entries (from the column header).

'Group By' Date and Product Code with a new column for the Average of Weight

---

Merge this table back to the original table on (Date, Product Code) to get the Average on each row.
