Unpivot columns

Dears,

 

i've made some changes under power query in power Bi service, and i got the following outcome. what i noticed is that for some KPIs i don't have for the same row and for the same KPI, both status and comment, but for the same KPI i have one row for status and another one for comment

Capture.PNG

Below what I want to be displayed in power Bi, so i can work on my visuals. whenever the row related to status and comments is empty, that row should be deleted

Thanks in advance.

Start from your table, duplicate two times this table and take the first row from the copies:

Then in the table, let’s say “one”, select all columns KPIx:status and apply unpivot columns, then remove columns commets and split column  attribute by delimeter “:”.

Do the same for the table “two” select all columns KPIx:comments and apply unpivot columns, then remove columns status and split column attribute by delimeter “:”.

 

Finally merge by field attribute.1

Hi @Zakaria_1980 ,

you should provide an example of the starting data structure, possibly in a form that can be easily copied, not an image.
