Separate Values with Distinct Date

Hi,

 

I have a Problem. Sometimes are system is creating two entries with the same Value (see below eg 01.01.2019 and 31.12.2019). In Power BI it multiplies these Values wrongly up.

Many thanks in advance.Unbenannt.JPG

Re: Separate Values with Distinct Date

@marc_frei, do you want to keep distinct rows?

 

If so, locate the table button on the left of the first column name, click the little arrow near this button. From the pop-up menu that will appear, click Remove Duplicates.

 

Or: select all columns and Home->Reduce Rows-> Remove Duplicates

Re: Separate Values with Distinct Date

So you should be able to use Remove Duplicates from the ribbon

Re: Separate Values with Distinct Date

this is not working, beacause there are several Numbers (First Row) with the same issue. 

I filtered it just to post it here. 

 

I need several numbers but just (first column) but with just one date.

 

Sorry my request was not clear.

Re: Separate Values with Distinct Date

Hi @marc_frei , 

I  am not clear  about your requirement, if you want to remove dulicated value, I think you could refer to above suggestions , choose all column and click remove reduplicated. 

let
    Source = Table.FromRows(Json.Document(Binary.Decompress(Binary.FromText("zdExDoQwDAXRu6RGyE5CbJ8Fcf9rLJu0eAoqmlA8fRFNzrOoNC/b/ZH7FN1l7FV0lGt7MANzsMhNBUzBKvxv7uzZKlgD62AH2AAzMAeL3FbPxKCLUpe5c+iZWAPrYAfYADMwB4vcVs/EoItSl7kL6JlYA+u5feku620TG2AG5mABXQQMuih1+e+qvN9dPw==", BinaryEncoding.Base64), Compression.Deflate)), let _t = ((type text) meta [Serialized.Text = true]) in type table [id = _t, amount = _t, date = _t]),
    #"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Source,{{"id", Int64.Type}, {"amount", Int64.Type}, {"date", type date}}),
    #"Removed Duplicates" = Table.Distinct(#"Changed Type")
in
    #"Removed Duplicates"

 If not, please correct me and inform me more detailed information(such as your expected output and your sample data)? Then I will help you more correctly.

Thanks for your understanding and support.
