Power Query Editor copy value to new column

Hi There


So I have a table called : Stock Database


Within this table there is a column (field) called : Total Value

Now this field a calculated field from sharepoint online list (the data source)


Now what i on Power Query Editor, to copy the values from Total Value to a new column (field) within this same table. However the copy process must be a step process so that its dynamic on each refreshing of this table. Now, since this field "Total Value" a calculated fields from sharepoint online list, so the copy must should be like a Excel, special Paste value to only copy the value and not the formula.


The new custom column called should be called: TValue


Below a screenshot current table and field

Hi @Jimmy801 


Thank you for your reply, however if I duplicate this field.


Will it refresh and bring new data changes if a specifix value has changed with the Total Value field. Remember the Total Value field on sharepoint is a calculated field, so from time to time the total value will change since the user will edit the quanity or stock purchased so that the Total Value will update automatically.

Hello @venstart 


yes it should always have the same value as you total value column. Give it a try and give feedback
