How to add specific items within a column to create a new item within that column?

Highlighted

Hi All,

 

I am trying to add specific items within a column with each other to create a new item. This is what my data looks like:

 

DatesCommodityUnitsValue
2018-09-122x4 R/L (Mid-week)USD/Ton12
2018-09-122x4 R/L (End-week)USD/Ton14
2018-10-122x4 R/L (Mid-week)USD/Ton16

 

I would like it to look like this:

 

DatesCommodityUnitsValue
2018-09-122x4 R/LUSD/Ton26
2018-10-122x4 R/L USD/Ton16

 

Any ideas or suggestions? Any and all ideas are really appreciated!

 

Thank you so much,

Akarsh

Hi @apaicanada ,

 

I have used a left function to eliminate information you don't need in commodity column and summarize the data.

 

Let me know if that works for you.

Best,
