Group By column to unpivot

Hi all!

I have a table like such:

 

IDItemColor
a123001red
a123002blue
b456001blue
c789001red
c789002blue
c789003purple

 

and I need it to be grouped, then "unpivoted" like so:

 

IDItem1Color1Item2Color2Item3Color3Item4Color4
a123001red002bluenullnullnullnull
b456001bluenullnullnullnullnullnull
c789001red002blue003purplenullnull

 

How would I be able to do this? 

 

edit: there's a similar question here https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/Group-by-a-column-with-expansion/m-p/504490#M235507 , but doesn't count for irregular item counts down the ID. would appreciate any and all help! 😉

I wonder whether a transformation of this type (second query in the file) is no longer useful.

But this can only be known by you depending on what you have to do next.

 

This solution can be simplified (see query ----2a)
