fill nulls with lookup power query

Hi,

 

I am looking to fill null values by a lookup using existing ID

 

eg

 

 

NameProduct
Test AFM
Test AFM
Test Anull
Test AFM
Test Anull

 

as you can see from above test a has products but some come back blank due to nature of the database. i need it to lookup the existing name and fill the nulls.

 

i can't use fill up and down as not all will align correctly even if I sort by name etc.

 

Any help would be appreciated

HI @fazza1991,

I think you can group these records first and nested the 'fill down' function into these group functions. Then you can expand these records to get the filled-down records based on the group.

Solved: Fill down by group - Microsoft Power BI Community

If the above also doesn't help, please share some dummy data to help us clarify your scenario and test.
