Merge columns based on values

Hi everyone

 

My data looks like (all of them are text type): 

 

Month1MonthYear
01

January

2022
02February2022
03March2022
04April2022
05May2022

 

I am only showing these months of 2022, but I have data since 2005. 

I want to create a new column, Month.Year, that combines both "Month" and "Year" if Month equals "Gener". If else it should state just Month. So it would look like:

 

Month1MonthYearMonth.Year
01

January

2022January 2022
02February2022February
03March2022March
04April2022April
05May2022May
06June2022June
07

July

2022

09September2022September
10October2022October
11November2022November
12December2022December

Use following formula in a custom column

 

= if Number.From([Month1])=1 then [Month]&" "&Text.From([Year]) else [Month]

 

 See the working here - Open a blank query - Home - Advanced Editor - Remove everything from there and paste the below code to test 

 

let
    Source = Table.FromRows(Json.Document(Binary.Decompress(Binary.FromText("i45WMlTSUfJKzCtNLKoEsowMjIyUYnWilYyAHLfUpCJ0cWMgxzexKDkDWdAEyHEsKMrMQRY0BatEaI4FAA==", BinaryEncoding.Base64), Compression.Deflate)), let _t = ((type nullable text) meta [Serialized.Text = true]) in type table [Month1 = _t, Month = _t, Year = _t]),
    #"Added Custom" = Table.AddColumn(Source, "Month.Year", each if Number.From([Month1])=1 then [Month]&" "&Text.From([Year]) else [Month])
in
    #"Added Custom"
