hi @saurabhsharma19 

 

Try below code. You have to do expand to new rows couple of times as your data is nested. But this will be one time as PQ will redo all steps when you refresh data.

 

let
Source = Table.FromRows(Json.Document(Binary.Decompress(Binary.FromText("nZLNbsIwEIRfBblXQn4qVWok1AO06qHqAegJR5GJVyWqE6f2piWqePdunAIJHJB6iJLszGfPer1esx/O0lxyFnOWCcXZmDOLwuCboZ94zdkWsbKx76OBUqqmhEmmCx8+6xwbnxCqCuMLpdzz4OBUCoRpFEShF4ZecM/rIIjuyNkXIu827IRMm0obUlKRYa5LO12ArRVazpI2DyjIUBvbBqK8Z3ErQclw2TdRT0Zr7HBsKnDAwbISGwUOlaBEQ1pA3wVtmFetEKOpobevg7GFbuYChcNt6l5p4NZxYqst9PdyQG20bEZoTq5nEBLMhW9L5YMv06ouykO3sENDx3KKtXUrdB2hzj4cU4oC+qX9+Ar6uPPaWQzhY/E6/kVnfgZ3pavoq0awQ/SvtE8cfJqvBBS5sv8b80tedmczmONkvnqapTOlS5Ajsabb+g6YON/lDTjeD0rGkuQX", BinaryEncoding.Base64), Compression.Deflate)), let _t = ((type nullable text) meta [Serialized.Text = true]) in type table [Column1 = _t]),

Hi @saurabhsharma19 

 

Looks like JASON format data. Try this

  • Paste the data in a single cell
  • Go to transform tab in powerquery editor
  • Select the column and then click on parse and Jason
  • Expand or extract values

Let me know if you need more help.

 

Thanks
