Apply transformation to multiple columns

I had 29 columns that needed to have the following transformation:


The incoming file had all the data in scientific notation with “NA” for nulls which I needed to replace

I ended up just highlighting all 29, using the trim operation, and then editing the XML with some find/replace. Is there a better way to apply a transformation like this to many columns?

It sounds like you’re working with a matrix table. The best way to deal with matrix data is to unpivot it first (using Unpivot transformation), transform as needed (all data will be in 1 column), then pivot it back as the last step.

Tip: You may want to use aggregation type Any for pivoting back.
