Listing values from Table and Sub tables



I am new to PowerBI. Trying to figure out how would I visualize or show the list of values of a row that contains another subtable


For example: Parent table has 5 rows and has a column called: "extrainfo" which is a subtable that has bunch of rows and columns.


When i use the query - i can only show values from Parent table but cannot seem to show values from sub-table.


I want to be able to show



How do i go about doing this?

Hi @lubam ,


If you want to expand List, Record or Table in Power Query Editor, you may refer to the blog as below to learn more details.

For reference: Work with a List, Record, or Table structured column (Power Query)

I hope it could help you solve your problem.


Best Regards,
