Load data via load script

Hi All

 

i am new to POwer BI. In QlikView you could load a value in a data table for Example the data table was: Name. But inside the Data table there was Chris, John and Peter. But he load script would make lets say Chris display as Manager and John as Head Of Department. So the script would look something like this:

if(Name = 'Chris', 'Manager',
if(Name = 'John', 'head of Department')) as Name.

 

Any help would be great.

Hi @AndreTru,

 

Based on my test, we can add a calculate column to meet your requirement.

 

header = IF('name'[Name]= "Chris","Manager",IF('name'[Name]="John","head of Department"))

 

The result as below.

Hi @AndreTru,

 

Just click the Data icon, then you will get this page. And right click any column to create a new column.
