Hi Team,

I have a dataset whose sample is below:

amitkumar93_0-1647588434767.png


Now i want to Promote the headers of first two rows from first row and Promote the headers of rest rows from 2nd row.

I have almost 100 rows like this in the original dataset so its difficult to update manually.

Please Advise.

Thanks
Amit

You can incorporate following M codes

For case 1

 

let
    Source = Excel.CurrentWorkbook(){[Name="Table1"]}[Content],
    #"Transposed Table" = Table.Transpose(Source),
    #"Merged Columns" = Table.CombineColumns(#"Transposed Table",{"Column1", "Column2"},Combiner.CombineTextByDelimiter("", QuoteStyle.None),"Merged"),
    #"Transposed Table1" = Table.Transpose(#"Merged Columns"),
    #"Promoted Headers" = Table.PromoteHeaders(#"Transposed Table1", [PromoteAllScalars=true])
in
    #"Promoted Headers"

 

For Case 2

let
    Source = Excel.CurrentWorkbook(){[Name="Table2"]}[Content],
    #"Demoted Headers" = Table.DemoteHeaders(Source),
    #"Transposed Table" = Table.Transpose(#"Demoted Headers"),
    #"Added Custom" = Table.AddColumn(#"Transposed Table", "Custom", each (if Text.Contains([Column1],"Column") or Text.Contains([Column1],"_") then "" else [Column1])&(if [Column2]=null then "" else [Column2])),
    #"Removed Columns" = Table.RemoveColumns(#"Added Custom",{"Column1", "Column2"}),
    #"Reordered Columns" = Table.ReorderColumns(#"Removed Columns",{List.Last(Table.ColumnNames(#"Removed Columns"))}&List.RemoveLastN(Table.ColumnNames(#"Removed Columns"),1) ),
    #"Transposed Table1" = Table.Transpose(#"Reordered Columns"),
    #"Promoted Headers" = Table.PromoteHeaders(#"Transposed Table1", [PromoteAllScalars=true])
in
    #"Promoted Headers"
