transforming a report as source for powerBI

hi all

 

I am trying to convert the following report into a proper data structure.

However, there are field headers and values in the bold portion. 

I am trying to convert the original report into the results shown below.

Hi @Query_query ,

 

I'd recommend creating a new table for the top 5 rows. It could look something like this:

let
Source = Table.FromRows(Json.Document(Binary.Decompress(Binary.FromText("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", BinaryEncoding.Base64), Compression.Deflate)), let _t = ((type nullable text) meta [Serialized.Text = true]) in type table [#"(blank)" = _t, #"(blank).1" = _t, #"(blank).2" = _t, #"(blank).3" = _t, #"(blank).4" = _t, #"(blank).5" = _t, #"(blank).6" = _t, #"(blank).7" = _t, #"(blank).8" = _t, #"(blank).9" = _t, #"(blank).10" = _t, #"(blank).11" = _t, #"(blank).12" = _t, #"(blank).13" = _t, #"(blank).14" = _t, #"(blank).15" = _t, #"(blank).16" = _t, #"(blank).17" = _t, #"(blank).18" = _t, #"(blank).19" = _t, #"(blank).20" = _t, #"(blank).21" = _t, #"(blank).22" = _t, #"(blank).23" = _t, #"(blank).24" = _t, #"(blank).25" = _t, #"(blank).26" = _t]),

Hi @Query_query ,

 

You could try to remove the top 6-rows and promoting the 7th as headers. Would look something like this:

Before:

After:

JasperDJ_1-1692946649244.png

 

Here is the code I used:

let
Source = Table.FromRows(Json.Document(Binary.Decompress(Binary.FromText("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", BinaryEncoding.Base64), Compression.Deflate)), let _t = ((type nullable text) meta [Serialized.Text = true]) in type table [#"(blank)" = _t, #"(blank).1" = _t, #"(blank).2" = _t, #"(blank).3" = _t, #"(blank).4" = _t, #"(blank).5" = _t, #"(blank).6" = _t, #"(blank).7" = _t, #"(blank).8" = _t, #"(blank).9" = _t, #"(blank).10" = _t, #"(blank).11" = _t, #"(blank).12" = _t, #"(blank).13" = _t, #"(blank).14" = _t, #"(blank).15" = _t, #"(blank).16" = _t, #"(blank).17" = _t, #"(blank).18" = _t, #"(blank).19" = _t, #"(blank).20" = _t, #"(blank).21" = _t, #"(blank).22" = _t, #"(blank).23" = _t, #"(blank).24" = _t, #"(blank).25" = _t, #"(blank).26" = _t]),

Thanks Jasper, the top 5 rows are required, as they will be transformed as five additional headers (code, branch, country, cny, rate) with their respective values.
