Modify a conditional column

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

I have a pretty basic question, but I can't seem to find the answer. I have created a conditional column in one of my tables. How can I modify these conditions afterwards if I want to make some changes?

 

Kind regards,

Matt

If you want to add the condition column in Query Editor, you can add custom column with Power Query syntax. 

 

if [Column1] = "a" then 0 else 1

Re: Modify a conditional column

Click on your column and you should see the formula in the bar just above the table. Or are you doing this in the Query Editor?

Re: Modify a conditional column

Hi,

 

Thank you for your help, but I am indeed doing this in de query editor where I put 10 conditional lines (if X then Y), how can I change these lines from the editor?

 

Kind regards,

Matt

Hi Matthias93,

 

Maybe a little bit too late, but I don't think the reply (that is marked as solution) answered your question. You want to modify your Custom Column in the Query Editor.

To do this, go to your Applied Steps in the Query Settings (on the right side). Then click on the settings icon and then you can change your query. More information here.

 

Kind regards,

Ricardo
