you can see in the attached picture 2 columns, that I want to comapre.

but I want to loop thorough them.

So, I want to check if the  number in [end_zipcode] is exist in [Station_zipcode].


And if it is found, I want to orgnize them on the same row. like the other picture

Normally, I would suggest you do this with DAX, but given your desired output I used query instead.  Is this what you are looking for?




If so, you can achieve it with this M code.  Just copy/paste it into a blank query and Advanced Editor.


Source = Table.FromRows(Json.Document(Binary.Decompress(Binary.FromText("i45WMjQ0NFbSgVCxOmC+JYRvCeYbGZgYAPlgCixvYAxWD6Kg6k0g6k1gfAsI30IpNhYA", BinaryEncoding.Base64), Compression.Deflate)), let _t = ((type text) meta [Serialized.Text = true]) in type table [end_zipcode = _t, Station_zipcode = _t]),
#"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Source,{{"end_zipcode", type text}, {"Station_zipcode", type text}}),
#"Added Custom" = Table.AddColumn(#"Changed Type", "Custom", each #"Changed Type"[Station_zipcode]),
#"Removed Columns" = Table.RemoveColumns(#"Added Custom",{"Station_zipcode"}),
#"Expanded Custom" = Table.ExpandListColumn(#"Removed Columns", "Custom"),
#"Renamed Columns" = Table.RenameColumns(#"Expanded Custom",{{"Custom", "Station_zipcode"}}),
#"Changed Type1" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(#"Renamed Columns",{{"Station_zipcode", type text}}),
#"Added Custom1" = Table.AddColumn(#"Changed Type1", "Compare", each if [end_zipcode]=[Station_zipcode] then "True" else "False"),
#"Changed Type2" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(#"Added Custom1",{{"Compare", type text}})
#"Changed Type2"
