Capturar.PNG

 

Hello, 

 

I have on this table a loooootttsss of "zero" values on the column "consumo", and i need to replace just that one on the screenshot for "8770". im not managing to do that, when i use the replace option, its changing all the zeros on my consumo column to "8770".

This can easily be done in M.  In your query, add a custom column which looks for both the zero and an ID which identifies the row.

 

consumo_New = if ( [ID] = "whatever id" and [consumo] = "0" ) then "8770" else [consumo]

 

Remove the original [consumo] column and rename [consumo_New] to [consumo]

 

Later, you can update this column for any additonal updates you need to make

Hi @bolabuga,

 

BraneyBI’s solution seems great, you can also use dax formula to replace the specify value(need a unique value to find the specify record):

 

For example( assume HIDRO is the unique value column):

Table = SELECTCOLUMNS(Sheet1,"Column1",[column1],"consumo",if(AND([HIDRO]=”Y09F266296”,[consumo]=0),8770,[consumo]),"Column2",[column2], "Column3",[column3],…)

 

Reference:

SELECTCOLUMNS Function (DAX)

 

Notice: dax query can’t replace current table’s value, you can create a new table to store these values.

Hi @BraneyBI

 

Even after doing as advised my value is still not getting replaced! (even after adding the custom column)

 

What could possibly be the reason ? 

 

 

 

@FathimaMoideen

 

It should work, if the combination of just 2 filters will find the "1 result" you want to replace.

 

In my case, [the id of a specific client] where [consumo] was equals to zero, found the right value to replace on the entire table, however that could not be the case for you.

 

If that is your problem, you should look which combination of filters (results on your table) will find just that specific result you want to change the value, maybe a specific date/month/year.

 

for example:

 

NEW_COLUMN = If( [ID] = "whatever id" and [year] = "whatever year" and [consumo] = 0 then "your_value" else [consumo])

Hi @bolabuga

 

Thanks for the Explanation 🙂

 

However it also worked when i tried with Conditional Column.

Braney i had time to test it today, and it worked pretty well, im posting the result for future references.
