Concatenate values

Hi,

 

I need to create a calculated column to my dataset called "Concatenated values". The column lists all employees with the same Job except for the current person. Therefore we have three analysts and on Jessie's row, the two others are listed. How do i do this in a calculated column?

Hi, @CarlsBerg999 

Thank you for your feedback.

I tried to create a new sample based on the explanation.

 

Please check the link down below, and please try the below formula to create a new unique column.

New Columns CC Fix =
VAR currentjob = 'Table'[Job]
VAR currentname = 'Table'[Name]
VAR newtable =
SUMMARIZE (
FILTER ( 'Table', 'Table'[Job] = currentjob && 'Table'[Name] <> currentname ),
'Table'[Name]
)
RETURN
CONCATENATEX ( newtable, 'Table'[Name], ", " )

Hi, 

This seems to be doing the trick but the dataset contains the same name multiple times. Is it possible to return only the unique values? For example, now I have John 67 times on the Concatenax column
