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

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.
