If we would group data which column(s) should be used grouping?

output will look like thisOutput.xlsx (11.1 KB)

Please check the summary of your requirements and ensure that all cased are defined and covered:

  • Rows are grouped on ID Column Value
  • If a group has multiple members
    • take member rows, where COL document_number is not empty (ALL)
  • If a group has no multiple members
    • PLEASE specify what is to do

for a starter help give a try on:

(From d In YourDataTableVar.AsEnumerable
Group d By k= d("ID").toString.Trim Into grp=Group
Let gmb = grp.Where(Function (x) Not (isNothing(x("document_number")) OrElse String.IsNullOrEmpty(x("document_number").toString.Trim)))
Let chk = gmb.Count > 0
Let res = If(chk, gmb, grp)
Select r=res).SelectMany(Function (x) x).CopyToDataTable
