Power Query

Multiple Find Replace with Power Query List.Accumulate()

Imagine you have a paragraph of text and you want to replace all occurrences of {four, normal, mysterious, nonsense} with {six, casual, confounding, handbags}. How would you do that?

Worry not, you can use Power Query to transform original text to new one by replacing all matching values.

In this page, learn how to do that with the excellent List.Accumulate() Power Query function.
