Partition the table ({[a = 2, b = 4], [a = 6, b = 8], [a = 2, b = 4], [a = 1, b = 4]}) into 2 tables on column [a], using the value of the columns as the hash function.

Table.Partition(Table.FromRecords({[a = 2, b = 4], [a = 1, b = 4], [a = 2, b = 4], [a = 1, b = 4]}), "a", 2, each _)

{ Table.FromRecords({[a = 2, b = 4], [a = 2, b = 4]}, { "a", "b" }), Table.FromRecords({[a = 1, b = 4], [a = 1, b = 4]}, { "a", "b" }) }
