Add suffix from existing column to another existing column in Query Editor

Hi!

 

I'm looking to add a suffix from an existing column to another existing column in the Query Editor. I've tried the following formula, but it doesn't work :

 

 

= Table.TransformColumns(#"Personnalisée ajoutée", {{"idResponse", each _ & " -" & Text.From([Année Baromètre], "fr-CA"), type text}})

 

 

I would like to limit my steps and do so without creating another column. Is it possible?

 

Thanks!

Hi @KaterineCAA,

 

let
    Source = Table.FromRows(Json.Document(Binary.Decompress(Binary.FromText("Vc07DoAgFETRrZhXU8DDD5a6BFtCYSKFhWDQRek62JjGRqY8meSOtbQukz/2GA5PgoYQ8u2rcU5xy9eZPDlhqXsXlsp8MCX6EkqCFIhBGgR9BU2GJkOTocnQ5BrUgFoQvOv/zz0=", BinaryEncoding.Base64), Compression.Deflate)), let _t = ((type text) meta [Serialized.Text = true]) in type table [#"(blank)" = _t, #"(blank).1" = _t]),
    #"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Source,{{"(blank)", type text}, {"(blank).1", type text}}),
    #"Promoted Headers" = Table.PromoteHeaders(#"Changed Type", [PromoteAllScalars=true]),
    #"Changed Type1" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(#"Promoted Headers",{{"idResponse", Int64.Type}, {"Année Baromètre", Int64.Type}}),
    #"Replace_Value" =Table.ReplaceValue( #"Changed Type1", each  [idResponse] ,each Text.Combine({Number.ToText([idResponse]), Number.ToText([Année Baromètre])}," - ") ,Replacer.ReplaceValue,{"idResponse"})
in
    Replace_Value

Re: Add suffix from existing column to another existing column in Query Editor

Here's a sample of my data

 

idResponseAnnée Baromètre
72018
82018
92018
102018
112018
122018
132018
172018
192018
202018
212018
222018
232018
242018
252018
262018
272018
302018

 

Expected result would be :

idResponse
7 - 2018
8 - 2018
9 - 2018
10 - 2018
11 - 2018
12 - 2018
13 - 2018
17 - 2018
19 - 2018
20 - 2018
21 - 2018
22 - 2018
23 - 2018
24 - 2018
25 - 2018
26 - 2018
27 - 2018
30 - 2018

Re: Add suffix from existing column to another existing column in Query Editor

here you go:

let

...

,...

... // your earlier steps

  #"Replace_Value" =Table.ReplaceValue( #"Sample_Table", each  [idResponse],each [idResponse]&"-"&[Année Baromètre],Replacer.ReplaceValue,{"idResponse"})

 

//#"Sample_Table -- This is your earlier step

 

in

 

#"Replace_Value"

 

Here you are not creating new column.

 

Thanks
