Is it possible to change an imported column into a calculated column?

I have a file I import that has a column with null column values. I would like to replace this imported column with a concatenation calculation that joins two other columns together programmatically. Is this possible without having to go through the process of creating the column each time I want to add a new value?

Hi @pbiuser2,

 

With DAX, it is not possible to replace column values in place without adding calculated column.

 

You could try to achieve this requirement via Power Query Text.Replace and Text.ReplaceRange
