    Returning Occurrences

    Hello Again,

    I am sure this is way easier than I am making it. I am looking for the following formula:

    I have mainly blanks in columns with wording in a few. I need to bring back the wording in occurrence.

    Column 1 through 10:

    Blank, Blank, wording 1, blank, blank, blank, wording 2, blank, blank, wording 3

    I need to show the following:

    Wording 1
    Wording 2
    Wording 3

    and that is it

    Thanks!

    Thanks, but when I put that in it returns a blank. I evaluated the formula and it gets to the row(a1) and it comes back with REF.

    Please read the yellow banner at the top of this page on how to attach a file. I am sure this can be resolved using Power Query and the Unpivot function

    It is an array formula and must be closed with Ctrl+Shift+Enter

    Otherwise, see the big yellow banner at the top

    Re: Returning Occurrences

    I have attached the spreadsheet. I technically need it for 2 rows (2 and 3) and it is much larger than the 10 in the sample. I have put the formula in C6 and C7. Thanks a ton for the help

    I have no idea what the file has to do with the question. And what the expected outcome is. Also adjust your profile so that we know which version (s) of Excel you are using.

    Re: Returning Occurrences

    There are blanks all the way up until LE and LZ. I would want to pull what is said in both of those to columns

    Re: Returning Occurrences

    You can also simply answer the questions asked. You apparently have not understood the term sample file either.

    Re: Returning Occurrences

    In the attached sheet, I used Power Query to unpivot the data in the columns through Jan 31. For example purposes, I saw no reason to extend it out further. I put Yes, No and Blanks so you could see how this worked.

    Here is the Mcode.

    Review PQ
    In the attached file
    Click on any cell in the new table
    On the Data Tab, click on Queries & Connections
    In the right window, double click to open Query
    Review PQ steps

    M-code basics:
    - "let" is the start of a query
    - "in" is the closing of a query
    - each transformation step sits in between those 2 lines
    - each step line is ended by a comma, except the last one
    - "Source" is always the first step (Source Data)
    - After "in" you have the last step referenced
