How to append queries to calculated columns

 Hello all,

 

I am stuck with a problem that I am really hoping someone can help me with. 

 

I have savings data on a separate table (from query) (CostCentreID - 2015/16 - 2016/17 - 2017/18 etc.), and my main table will have calculated columns to calculate 2016/17, 2017/18 etc. using multipliers from yet another table (I am tackling this part with LOOKUPVALUE). 

 

My question is how can I append the savings rows into my main table where there are exactly named columns (2016/17 etc.). I am happy to create a new table too, but I am unable to do that using UNION. 

 

Please let me know if you need any additional information.

Hi @geejay

 

Go to Edit Queries option on PBID, try using "Append Queries" option.

That doesn't work with calculated columns as they don't show up on query editor.

In Power BI Desktop, the calculated column will not be displayed in Query Editor. You can only add Custom Column within Query Editor and use it for appending queries.
