Replace Values of cell upon load in Power Query?

I have data that I am not able to interact with from a database I don't personally have credentials to. Anyway, instead of states, the regions are classified as US/NC, US/GA, US/NJ, etc. I know I can replace data after it has been loaded, but is there a way to catch it have it changed when new data is refreshed into the report? Thanks

Hi @bw70316 ,

Based on my research, you could try to use if condition to create a new column for your data to replace your former data:

And it could work when you refresh your data.
