Create custom column with cocatenated value

Hello

My table has 5 columns with column header Col1, Col2, Col3, Col4 and Col5
All of them contains values True or False
In Power Query I will create new custom column with name Col6
This Column will contain concatenated value of Col1-5 headers.
Lets say row 2 has values True,True,False,False,True
Then I want Col6 value to be a concatenation as follows "Col1|Col2|Col5"
Can anybody help me with such a M-code statement?

Hi @claper57 

Try this as code fro your custome column:

= Text.Combine({if [Col1] then "Col1" else null,if [Col2] then "Col2" else null, if [Col3] then "Col3" else null,if [Col4] then "Col4" else null,if [Col5] then "Col5" else null}, "|")

try also this

 

let
    Origine = Table.FromRows(Json.Document(Binary.Decompress(Binary.FromText("i45WCikqTVXSgVFuiTnFyDRYOFYnGl0emy6QMjR5bMpjYwE=", BinaryEncoding.Base64), Compression.Deflate)), let _t = ((type nullable text) meta [Serialized.Text = true]) in type table [Colonna1 = _t, Colonna2 = _t, Colonna3 = _t, Colonna4 = _t, Colonna5 = _t]),
    #"Modificato tipo" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Origine,{{"Colonna1", type logical}, {"Colonna2", type logical}, {"Colonna3", type logical}, {"Colonna4", type logical}, {"Colonna5", type logical}}),
    cols=Table.ColumnNames(#"Modificato tipo"),
    #"Aggiunta colonna personalizzata" = Table.AddColumn(#"Modificato tipo", "WhereIsTrue", each Text.Combine(List.Transform(List.PositionOf(Record.FieldValues(_),true, Occurrence.All),each cols{_}),"|"))
in
    #"Aggiunta colonna personalizzata"

Thanks - I will try this also - to learn 🙂
