Duplicate Rows based on Date & Frequency - Power Query

Hello PBI Gurus,

 

I am after your assistance with a query that can duplicate rows based on date & frequency of occurance to generate a work schedule calendar, where an employee has different schedules, eg work a 9 day fortnight, part time Mon to Thur, Weekends, etc.

 

Data contained in first excel sheet from a single row to duplicate the row at each date occurance, with the end result a visual calendar of employee availability

Appreciate any assistance with this one as with my initial calendar, I entred RDO frequency manually for a small hanful of employees and is not viable for the scale of data I have for 1500 employees and frequency of schedules to change.

Re: Duplicate Rows based on Date & Frequency - Power Query

I managed to figure it out (there maybe a better way of doing it thou).......

 

I added an Index column against each individual entry and then added a new column:

 

=List.Dates(Date.AddDays([EventDate],[#"Frequencey"]),[Occurance],Duration.From(#"Frequency"]))

 

And it worked
