Unique values in new rows

I am guessing there is a simple solution out there and I am driving myself crazy trying to find it. Anyway, I have a massive table with a Customer Name field… each customer name could have hundreds of rows associated with it.

In another table, I am trying to list the unique customer names. I can use the “sourcetable.customer_name.unique()” equation to capture the unique names in a list, however, splitting the names into rows is proving to be challenging.

I saw someone used an approach like “sourcetable.customer_name.unique().formulamap(addrow())”, but that is erroring out on the addrow piece.

Any ideas? Feels like this should be a simple solution.

Hey @Eckles_Brock

Here is a quick solution to create/update your customer list

Here is my initial situation : a Table with transaction including the customers you want to extract, and a Customer Table

Firstly, I check if the customer already exist in the CUstomer table (this is for further update)

Then, I’ve got a button that will create unique row in CustomerTable for customer that does not already exist → this allow initial creation but also update

And here you go


Please find embed and play with it

Hi Eckles,

What you could also do is to follow the following steps:

  • Make the customer column a Select column type.
  • And then go to the column options, and choose the option “Convert to table”.
