Aggregate table columns in [t] in the table {[t = {[a=1, b=2, c=3], [a=2,b=4,c=6]}, b = 2]} into the sum of [t.a], the min and max of [t.b], and the count of values in [t.a].

Table.AggregateTableColumn(Table.FromRecords({[t = Table.FromRecords({[a=1, b=2, c=3], [a=2,b=4,c=6]}), b = 2]}, type table [t = table [a=number, b=number, c=number], b = number]), "t", { {"a", List.Sum, "sum of t.a"}, {"b", List.Min, "min of t.b"}, {"b", List.Max, "max of t.b"}, {"a", List.Count, "count of t.a"} })

Table.FromRecords({[#"sum of t.a" = 3, #"min of t.b" = 2, #"max of t.b" = 4, #"count of t.a" = 2, b = 2]})
