Extract Entry from List

Hello, I'm looking for a way to extract a specific entry from a list. I have created the two columns below in the Query Editor. The "Sorted Cycle Time" column contains a list of values in each row. I would like to extract the corresponding value in the "20 Percentile Item" column. Said differently, in the first row I would like to extract the 1170th value from the corresponding list in the "Sorted Cycle Time" row. Is there a simple way to do this in another column?

@pbakaric,

Add a custom column in Query Editor of Power BI Desktop, then extract the custom column value.

=List.Range([Sort Cycle Time],[20 Percentile Item]-1,1)

Re: Extract Entry from List

Awesome! That worked, thank you so much. 

 

I'm surprised that returned the value and not a count of 1. The documentation on list range doesn't make it seem like it would return a value. Thanks again!
