    Picking out select rows from a large table

    I'm trying to build an overlay chart with two lines. One line tracks the number of Robin Hood users holding shares of AAL stock. The other line tracks the price of AAL stock.

    I downloaded user data from RobinTrack but it's poorly organized. I'm trying to chart the number of daily users (weekdays only) over two years. RobinTrack provides hourly data and includes weekends.

    RobinTrack's table has two columns: Date/Time and Number of Users. There are 24 rows for each day time stamped at hourly intervals. I only need one row for each weekday time stamped at 20:45 UTC. So I only need one hour per day and I don't need weekends at all.

    The price data is downloaded from Yahoo Finance and is fine. But I need the data from RobinTrack and the data from Yahoo to line up in terms of the date. The date column has to match for both time series I'm plotting (number of users and price).

    I've attached a copy of the spreadsheet and an image of what I would like the chart to look like.

    Using Power Query, I was able to filter out all times not equal to 12:45

    Hi Alan,

    I'm sure this works but could you dumb it down for me? Once I'm in Power Query Editor and I highlight the Date and Time column and I select Split Column by Delimiter do I select the field Custom from the drop down box? And if so what do I type into the box just below it?

    Custom is the default name for the new column. You can change it now or later to your desired name. In the box below, you will want to use the delimiter "space"

    Hi Alan, would it be possible for you to attach the revised spreadsheet with the changes you made? Thanks!

    Great, thanks very much! I tried to "Add Reputation" to your post but it won't allow me.

    No issues, probably I was the last person you repped. Cannot rep the same person twice in a row. Your thoughts are appreciated.
