Any help would be appreciated.
I have a source table that shows allocated resources on a project. I would like to add a new column which appends to the "Resource Allocated" column ";Another" for each resource we have missing.
Resources Allocated,Number Required,Resources Missing
Resources Allocated, Number Required,Resources Missing,Resources Resource Allocated Ammended
Go to Solution.
You can do this with a custom column that repeats ";Another" according to the missing amount:
[Resources Allocated] & Text.Repeat(";Another", [Resources Missing])

I think the problem here is the original table design isn't designed for this type of reporting.
you should have a project table that lists the project and the number of resources required.
Then a resource table with your resource items (apparently people)
Then you make a project-resource table with a record for each resource allocated to a project.
Then the operation you are after becomes joins with counts or pivots depending what you want.
At the moment you are having to unpack and repack your resource lists for allocated to get counts, who etc.
You can also add some dates to the various tables if you want to have project scheduling with intermittent allocation rather than have to assign a resource to the entire project timeline.
