Multiple Tables

Hi 

 

I am trying to import data from an excel that has multiple tables formatted like this. Three tables are included, New Employees, Employee variations and Leaving Employees. 

 

I would like to insert another column that would classify each row as either a New Employee, Employee variations and Leaving Employees.

 

Is this possible? Appreciate anyone that can help.

 

Thanks

Mike

Once you have your data in a stack you can add a conditional column that looks for the word "Employees" in the first column and grabs that value if it finds it.  After that you can use the fill down to tag all the rows.

 

let
    Source = Table,
    #"Added Conditional Column" = Table.AddColumn(Source, "Custom", each if Text.Contains([Column1], "Employee") then [Column1] else null),
    #"Filled Down" = Table.FillDown(#"Added Conditional Column",{"Custom"})
in
    #"Filled Down"
