Filter Whole Number from Decimal Numbers

Dear Precious Community,

 

I have a column in my Power Query editor some whole numbers and some decimal numbers.

 

I would like to have two queries, one with the whole numbers only and the other one with the decimal numbers only

 

So I can duplicate my current query and they applying a filter accordingly, but am not sure to filter only whole numbers or decimal numbers only

 

any leads...?

 

Thanks

Here's one way to do it in the query editor.  To see how it works, just create a blank query, open the Advanced Editor and replace the text there with the M code below.  This one keeps the decimals but you can use = 0 in the Added custom step to keep the integers.

 

 

let
    Source = Table.FromRows(Json.Document(Binary.Decompress(Binary.FromText("i45WclTSUTJUitWJVnICsozALGeQmB5E1AUkqgcUjwUA", BinaryEncoding.Base64), Compression.Deflate)), let _t = ((type nullable text) meta [Serialized.Text = true]) in type table [Column1 = _t, NumberColumnToFilter = _t]),
    #"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Source,{{"Column1", type text}, {"NumberColumnToFilter", type number}}),
    #"Filtered Rows" = Table.SelectRows(#"Changed Type", each Number.Mod([NumberColumnToFilter],1) > 0)
in
    #"Filtered Rows"
