  • 1.  Merged headers from excel to pbi

    Posted Dec 27, 2021 01:32 PM
    Hi guys, I hope you help me.


    I have a very unusual spreadsheet to take to Power BI to generate a year 2022 budget report.
    The problem is:
    My spreadsheet contains a top header named the current month, and below the header it splits into 3 columns. "Forecast", "Accomplished" and "Difference" column.
    Exemple:
    ENTERPRISES |                    JANUARY                         |                      FEBRUARY...                 |
    null                    | Forecast | Accomplished | Difference |  Forecast | Accomplished | Difference |

    How can I solve this problem? I've tried for M Language but, the answer wasn't satisfatory.

    Hi Guy,

    Please find attached an example very close to yours.
    You'll have to use different tools, Transpose, Unpivot Fill down...
    In my example you'll start from this, so like you...
    merged cells, and title is in 2 parts on two different lines :
    Excel fileto turn it into this :
    Power Query after transformations
    First I had to transpose, then promote headers, then fill in (to fill in merged cells) anf finally unpivot columns.
    For details please see attached files.

    Tell us if you found your way ;-)
