Change value in Cells

This sounds easy, but I can't seem to figure this out.

 

I'm trying to change the values from dates starting with 2018 to True if there is a date or false if there isn't one.

 

It replaces the 2018 but leaves the trailing number still, I tried using the advanced editor but I can't seem to get it working.

 

Does anyone know how to do this for multi columns?

 

Thanks!

Re: Change value in Cells

Hi @Blue714,

 

We can create calcualted column to work on it.

 

Column = 
VAR _YEAR =
    YEAR ( 'Table1'[date] )
VAR _YEAR1 =
    YEAR ( 'Table1'[date1] )
VAR _YEAR2 =
    YEAR ( 'Table1'[date2] )
RETURN
    IF ( _YEAR = 2018 && _YEAR1 = 2018 && _YEAR2 = 2018, TRUE (), FALSE () )

Re: Change value in Cells

It might be a lot simpler to pivot/unpivot everything into two columns of fruit and date, then you can just make a new custom column of something like:

 

if Date.Year(date)=2018 then "true" else "false"

 

Then delete the existing date column and reverse the fruit pivoting/unpivoting

Re: Change value in Cells

I'm still a bit novice with the query, so I took both answers, mainly creating a custom column and using if Date.Year(date)=2018 then "true" else "false".

 

Frank's attachment helped quit a but, as I couldn't figure out how to get to the formula part of it... I'm sure there is a better way, but for my skillset, it works.

 

Thanks both!
