Table.ReorderColumns

Table.ReorderColumns

Returns a table with the columns in the specified order.

function (table as table, columnOrder as list, optional missingField as nullable any) as table

Description

Returns a table from the input table, with the columns in the order specified by columnOrder. Columns that are not specified in the list will not be reordered.

Examples

Switch the order of the columns [Phone] and [Name] in the table.

Table.ReorderColumns(Table.FromRecords({[CustomerID=1, Phone = "123-4567", Name ="Bob"]}), {"Name","Phone"})

Table.FromRecords({[CustomerID=1,Name="Bob", Phone="123-4567"]})

Switch the order of the columns [Phone] and [Address] or use "MissingField.Ignore" in the table. It doesn't change the table because column [Address] doesn't exist.

Table.ReorderColumns(Table.FromRecords({[CustomerID=1, Name = "Bob", Phone = "123-4567"]}), {"Phone", "Address"}, MissingField.Ignore)

Table.FromRecords({[CustomerID=1,Name="Bob", Phone="123-4567"]})
