Creating Rows and Columns form one Row

I have a table that looks like Original Table in the attached spreadsheet.


  1. As you can see, instead of one row per account, there is a range per group.

  2. Each Account can belong to more than one group. Basically they are nested.

I think I need to transform it into the Desired Outcome.

I assume I will need some type of loop. Can anyone suggest where I might start please.

Thank you,

Hi @kellysolutions,

Loaded the data and removed the unused column

Created Lists for each range

Expanded the Lists and Grouped By them

Retrieved the LookUpKey and Extracted the items

Finally split the column into 6 Groups

Glad I could help Paul :+1:

Well definitely been where you’re at - so I wouldn’t worry to much… Spent quite a bit of time inside the Query Editor since then working through solutions others had created, looking stuff up in the M function library, language specification and googling.
And here’s the good news - eDNA is working hard to extend the courses within the portal, additional Power Query modules will hopefully become available some time next year, so you can take the shortcut :smiley:
