Extend block of values

Hi guys,

 

This is a quick question that I have.

 

I have a table that looks like:

 

Type        Country       Date                   Value            Value of A           Value of B

A                  USA        01/01/2017         4                     4                         null

A                  CANADA 01/01/2017         6                    6                          null

A                  USA         02/01/2017         9                   9                          null

A                  CANADA 02/01/2017         10                  10                        null

...

B                  USA        01/01/2017         1                   null                          1

B                  CANADA 01/01/2017         2.4                null                         2.4

B                  USA         02/01/2017         4                  null                         4

B                 CANADA 02/01/2017         1.9                 null                         1.9
...

 

 

I need to extend the values of the column "Value of B", I mean to copy them in block for the same period but in the rows that have values of A, making it look like:

 

Type        Country       Date                   Value            Value of A           Value of B

A                  USA        01/01/2017         4                     4                           1

A                  CANADA 01/01/2017         6                    6                          2.4

A                  USA         02/01/2017         9                   9                           4

A                  CANADA 02/01/2017         10                  10                        1.9

...

B                  USA        01/01/2017         1                   null                          1

B                  CANADA 01/01/2017         2.4                null                         2.4

B                  USA         02/01/2017         4                  null                         4

B                 CANADA 02/01/2017         1.9                 null                         1.9
...

 

As you can see the values of Type B - USA - 01/01/2017 have been copied to the values of Type A - USA - 01/01/2017, so I am just Extending the values of the block corresponding to Type B to all other Types (in column Values of B).

 

Can someone help me?

 

Many thanks!!

Try creating calculated column: 

Value B = IF(Table2[Type]<>"B",
			    LOOKUPVALUE(Table2[Value],Table2[Type],"B",Table2[Country],Table2[Country],Table2[Date],Table2[Date]), //Similar to Excel. Apply a vlookup in the same table where the type is B 
			    Table2[Value]
			)

hi @Omega!

Thanks for your answer, however is not working. I forgot to say that I would need this new column to be created inside the Edit Queries and create it in M language!
