    Default Power Query help needed

    Power Query help needed
    Hi guys,

    Thank you for letting me be a part of the community. I wanted to know something about PowerQuery Excel 2016.

    I am getting reports of my cash register in Excel and i wanted make use of the data. The problem is that the date is only in one cell above in the sheet and i can not make a clean datatable, is it possible to copy that cell across a collom ? so i can merge all the sheets (different date in the cell) in one PowerQuery table.

    Thank you,

    Ajay from the Netherlands.

    It is possible. "How", depends on the detailed specifications.
    In the query below the dates are in cell A1 of each worksheet.
    Otherwise the column headers ("Id" and "Text" in this example) are in row 2 and data starts at row 3.

        Source = Excel.Workbook(File.Contents("C:\Users\Marcel\Documents\Forum bijdragen\MrExcel Power BI\Workbook with date in 1 cell.xlsx"), null, true),
        #"Removed Other Columns" = Table.SelectColumns(Source,{"Data"}),
        #"Added Date" = Table.AddColumn(#"Removed Other Columns", "Date", each Table.FirstValue([Data]), type date),
        #"Transformed Data" = Table.TransformColumns(#"Added Date",{{"Data", each Table.PromoteHeaders(Table.Skip(_,1)), type table}}),
        #"Expanded Data" = Table.ExpandTableColumn(#"Transformed Data", "Data", {"Id", "Text"}, {"Id", "Text"}),
        #"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(#"Expanded Data",{{"Id", Int64.Type}, {"Text", type text}})
        #"Changed Type"

    Specializing in Power Query (M).
    Using Excel 2007 (Dutch) and Excel 2016 (Office 365 ProPlus) (Dutch/English), both on Windows 10.
    Array formulas can be recognised by the {} Excel puts around it automatically when you press Ctrl+Shift+Enter upon formula entry.
