Current Excel VBA:

Set sRange = Range("G2:AAJ900")
For Each cel In sRange.Cells
If cel.Value = "S" And cel.Offset(, 1).Value = "RTO" Then
With sRange.Rows(cel.Row - sRange.Cells(1).Row + 1)
Set c = .Find("S", LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:=xlWhole)
Set c = .FindNext(cel)
If cel.Row = c.Row Then
If Application.CountIf(Range(cel, c), "RTO") = (Range(cel, c).Columns.Count - 2) Then
Range(cel.Offset(, 1), c.Offset(, -1)) = "S"
End If
End If

Hi, @ianboothman84 

According to your code, I think you can tell us about your logic and post some sample data(without sensitive data) and your expected result so that we can help you to achieve this in Power BI.

Thank you very much!

You cannot use VBA in Power Query or Power BI. Recreate your code in M (the Power Query language) or DAX (the Power BI language)
