Multiply a column with a constant in Power Query

Hello all,

 

I would like to multiply all values in a column with a specific constant using PowerQuery

I want the result will be displayed on the same column and not a new one.

 

Does anyone know how to do that?

Re: Multiply a column with a constant in Power Query

Hello @Zubair_Muhammad,

 

Thank you for teh reply. This creates a new column and i want to avoid that. I want to do the operation straight to the column in one step.

 

I managed to find the following script which does the trick actually.

 

= Table.ReplaceValue(#"Renamed Columns", each [SubTotal], each [SubTotal] * -1,Replacer.ReplaceValue, {"SubTotal"})

May be you used the ADDCOLUMN tab instead of TRANSFORM tab

 

Both have this functionality

 

Use this button from the TRANSFORM tab, it won't add a column
