Filter out row using Table.SelectRows and conditional if/and

Hi all, 

I need to drop a row from my table in power query (Excel). I presume I need to filter that row out. The trouble is that other rows also have than same value and I dont want to filter out the other ones too. For example, I want to filter out 

[Total]<>26 where in the same row the [Indicator] is "bob"

I do not want to filter out [Total]<>26 for "sally" and "jane"

I do not want to filter out "bob" if total does not equal 26 (since bob has other rows in other years I want to keep

 

I tried this

#"myfilter" = Table.SelectRows(#"previous step", each ([Total] <> 26 and [Indicator] <>"bob"))

But of course this filtered out all the 26 and all the bob entries...How do I write this please?

Best, Roger

Hi @Rogerbij 

 

You can filter to Bob and 26 and add not like below.

 

= Table.SelectRows(#"Changed Type", each not ([Indicator] = "bob" and [Total] = 26))

Hi @Rogerbij 

 

You can try the below.

 

= Table.SelectRows(#"Changed Type", 
        each not ( 
                ( [Indicator] = "bob" and [Total] = 26 ) 
             or ( [Indicator] = "jane" and [Total] = 21 )
             or ( [Indicator] = "jon" and [Total] = 15 )
        ) 
    )

Re: Filter out row using Table.SelectRows and conditional if/and

Thanks a lot @Mariusz , 

each not() was exactly what I needed. 

I also figured I could add an Index column and then filter out that unique ID. 

Cheers, Roger

Re: Filter out row using Table.SelectRows and conditional if/and

Hi, can I ask a further question on this, 

 

How can I adjust the code so that this code:

= Table.SelectRows(#"Changed Type", each not ([Indicator] = "bob" and [Total] = 26))
= Table.SelectRows(#"Changed Type", each not ([Indicator] = "jane" and [Total] = 21))
= Table.SelectRows(#"Changed Type", each not ([Indicator] = "jon" and [Total] = 15))

is wrapped in something like a  

each [indicator]
each if then
else if then
else

So I dont have to keep writing '= Table.SelectRows(#' ? 

Thanks, Roger
