Replace values in Power Query

Find and Replace is quite common in Excel. If you are not sure about what options we have for Find and Replace, please read my blogpost here.

In regular Excel, the Find and Replace action is one-off. Whenever we have new data, we need to perform the same action, repeatedly. If we want to do that by a click of refresh, then we should do it in Power Query. Find and Replace is called “Replace values” or “Replace errors” under the Transform tab of Power Query Editor.

As the name suggests, we can replace values or errors in Power Query. To perform Find and Replace in Power Query is similar to doing the same thing in Excel. However, there are a few details we need to pay attention to.

You may download a sample file to follow along.
