Dynamicly delete x line

Hi

I have multiple Excel file to concatenate, but i should only start after that i found this  information Section 7 on a specific sheet.

This information is not at the same line for each file

I made a function TrouveIndexSection to found the line of the information for each file, it works

I made another function SuppLignes to delete the line for each file, but i don't arrive to use the result of the previous function TrouveIndexSection as an argument for my function .... in order to delete the good number of line for each file

Here My file :

Not sure exactly what you are trying to achieve but have a look at this:

let
    Source = Excel.Workbook(File.Contents("C:\Users\xxx\Downloads\SUPPORT.xlsx"), null, true),
    Synthèse_test_Sheet = Source{[Item="Synthèse_test",Kind="Sheet"]}[Data],
    #"Promoted Headers" = Table.PromoteHeaders(Synthèse_test_Sheet, [PromoteAllScalars=true]),
    #"Filtered Rows" = Table.SelectRows(#"Promoted Headers", each [Column2] <> null  and Text.Lower([Column2])<>Text.Lower([Nom]))
in
    #"Filtered Rows"

Hi 

thanks for your reply but it is not that i want

 

I try to explain in other way

I concatenate 2 files Y and Z

In the Y file i want to delete the 8 fist lines ant for Z the 6 and after concanetate the rest of lines of the 2 files

 

I found 8 and 6 because with the fist function i search Section 7 and for the Y file it is at the 8 position

and for the Z files it is at the 6

Your solution does the job on my example files, but for the real files i really need to filter base on the position as explain

let
    Source = Folder.Files("C:\Users\xxx\Downloads"),
    #"Filtered Rows" = Table.SelectRows(Source, each [Name] = "ww.xlsx" or [Name] = "yy.xlsx" or [Name] = "ZZ.xlsx"),
    LoadFile = (Ex) => let
        #"Imported Excel Workbook" = Excel.Workbook(Ex),
        #"Fiche contrôle_Sheet" = #"Imported Excel Workbook"{[Item="Fiche contrôle",Kind="Sheet"]}[Data],
        #"Added Index" = Table.AddIndexColumn(#"Fiche contrôle_Sheet", "Index", 0, 1, Int64.Type),
        #"Removed Top Rows" = Table.Skip(#"Added Index",Table.SelectRows(#"Added Index", each ([Column2] = "Section 7 : RECOMMANDATIONS#(lf)"))[Index]{0}+1),
        #"Replaced Value" = Table.ReplaceValue(#"Removed Top Rows",null,"Category",Replacer.ReplaceValue,{"Column2"}),
        #"Removed Other Columns" = Table.SelectColumns(#"Replaced Value",{"Column2", "Column4"}),
        #"Promoted Headers" = Table.PromoteHeaders(#"Removed Other Columns", [PromoteAllScalars=true])
    in
        #"Promoted Headers",
    #"Added Custom" = Table.AddColumn(#"Filtered Rows", "DataCustom", each LoadFile([Content])),
    #"Removed Other Columns" = Table.SelectColumns(#"Added Custom",{"Name", "DataCustom"}),
    #"Expanded DataCustom" = Table.ExpandTableColumn(#"Removed Other Columns", "DataCustom", {"Category", "Thème"}, {"Category", "Thème"}),
    #"Filtered Rows1" = Table.SelectRows(#"Expanded DataCustom", each ([Thème] <> null))
