Guys, I need your support please, I need to remove duplicates selecting 4 columns based on 5th column value condicationally:

 

The current script carries out removing the duplications of 4 selected columns:

= Table.Distinct(#"Divided Column", {"HR ID", "Employee Name", "Exception Duration", "Date"})

 

Now, how to set this in condition if "Exception Type" = "Daily"

I'm looking at your top image as the desired output.  It seems to include duplicates (lines 2 and 3) as well as an Exception type of Monthly.  I thought you wanted those removed? Can you clarify?

Do the following steps:

1. Duplicate your source query
2. Filter on one with Exception Type = Daily
3. Apply Remove Duplicates on the table

4. On the other copy of the query, filter out daily
5. Append as New query
