How Remove Duplicates Using SELECTCOLUMNS

How would I modify this formula to remove duplicates for Material Number?

 

New Table Name = SELECTCOLUMNS(Existing Table Name,  "Material Number",[Material Number], "Material Name",[Material Name])

 

I have an existing table and I am creating a new table from 3 fields in the existing table.   I think SELECTCOLUMNS is the DAX formula I should be using since these are all just text fields, but I want to remove duplicates for Material Number.

Re: How Remove Duplicates Using SELECTCOLUMNS

Hi @bhorvati

 

One way is just to wrap a DISTINCT around it

 

 

New Table Name = 
DISTINCT(
SELECTCOLUMNS(Existing Table Name, "Material Number",[Material Number], "Material Name",[Material Name])
)
