Start date and end date

Hi 
I have three columns. 

Posting date, Job No_ and Job Task No_

 

I would like to make to extra columns with start date and end date

 

Start date would be List.Min of Posting date for specific Job No_ and Job Task No_

End date would be List.Max of Posting date for specific Job No_ and Job Task No_

 

Posting DateJob No_Job Task No_Start date
10.07.2018100780109.07.2018
13.07.2018100780109.07.2018
09.07.2018100780109.07.2018
09.07.2018100780109.07.2018

10.07.2018100780109.07.2018
10.07.2018100780109.07.2018
10.07.2018100780109.07.2018
10.07.2018100780109.07.2018
10.07.2018100780109.07.2018

 

How would I write this in Power Query.

Hello @Rune_ 

 

group your data on you job-columns and add 3 functions.

One all rows, one min on Posting date and one max on Posting date. Afterwards expand your AllRows-Column

Here a example

let
    Source = Table.FromRows(Json.Document(Binary.Decompress(Binary.FromText("i45WMjTQMzDXMzIwtFDSAXIMzEG0gaFSrA5Qzhi3nIEleXJ47RsscrEA", BinaryEncoding.Base64), Compression.Deflate)), let _t = ((type nullable text) meta [Serialized.Text = true]) in type table [#"Posting Date" = _t, #"Job No_" = _t, #"Job Task No_" = _t]),
    #"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Source,{{"Posting Date", type date}, {"Job No_", Int64.Type}, {"Job Task No_", Int64.Type}},"de-DE"),
    #"Grouped Rows" = Table.Group(#"Changed Type", {"Job No_", "Job Task No_"}, {{"AllRows", each _, type table [Posting Date=date, Job No_=number, Job Task No_=number]}, {"Start Date", each List.Min([Posting Date]), type date}, {"End Date", each List.Max([Posting Date]), type date}}),
    #"Expanded AllRows" = Table.ExpandTableColumn(#"Grouped Rows", "AllRows", {"Posting Date"}, {"Posting Date"})
in
    #"Expanded AllRows"

Copy paste this code to the advanced editor in a new blank query to see how the solution works.

Another option, albeit perhaps slower:

let
    Source = Table.FromRows(Json.Document(Binary.Decompress(Binary.FromText("i45WMjTQMzDXMzIwtFDSAXIMzEG0gaFSrA5Qzhi3nIEleXJ47RsscrEA", BinaryEncoding.Base64), Compression.Deflate)), let _t = ((type nullable text) meta [Serialized.Text = true]) in type table [#"Posting Date" = _t, #"Job No_" = _t, #"Job Task No_" = _t]),
    #"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Source,{{"Posting Date", type date}, {"Job No_", Int64.Type}}),

    #"Added Custom" = Table.AddColumn(#"Changed Type", "Star Date", each List.Min(Table.SelectRows(#"Changed Type", (inner)=>[[Job No_], [Job Task No_]] = inner[[Job No_], [Job Task No_]])[Posting Date]), type date),
    #"Added Custom1" = Table.AddColumn(#"Added Custom", "End Date", each List.Max(Table.SelectRows(#"Changed Type", (inner)=>[[Job No_], [Job Task No_]] = inner[[Job No_], [Job Task No_]])[Posting Date]), type date)
in
    #"Added Custom1"

Hi @Rune_ 

Please always show your sample data in text-tabular format in addition to (or instead of) the screen captures. A screen cap doesn't allow people to readily copy the data.

And please show the expected result for your sample data as well
