Hi @FrankWoody 

 

Try this DAX expression to add your new calculated column:

New Column = 
VAR _Len =
    LEN ( 'Table'[DATE] )
VAR _Dash_No =
    _Len - LEN ( SUBSTITUTE ( 'Table'[DATE], "-", "" ) )
VAR _C =
    IF ( LEFT ( RIGHT ( 'Table'[DATE], 4 ), 1 ) = "-", 4, 3 )
VAR _K =
    IF ( _Dash_No > 2, RIGHT ( 'Table'[DATE], _Len - 2 ), 'Table'[DATE] )
VAR _Re =
    IF ( _Dash_No > 2, LEFT ( _K, LEN ( _K ) - _C ), LEFT ( 'Table'[DATE], 4 ) )
RETURN
    _Re

It turned out wonderful. I need to study the lines point by point to try to make some adaptations. and see if it works.

Hi:

You can try this calculatedcolmun:

New Column =
VAR Firstdash =
FIND (
"-",
'Table'[Date],
1
)
VAR SecondDash =
FIND (
"-",
'Table'[Date],
FirstDash + 1
)
VAR thirdDash =
FIND (
"-",
'Table'[Date],
SecondDash + 2
)

RETURN
MID (
'Table'[Date],
FirstDash+1 ,
ThirdDash-3 )
I hope this is a good solution for you.

I tried to use FIND but this error appears "Could not find the Search text given to function 'FIND' in the text in question."

Hi:

That is strange. Please see attached solution. The message is saying what ever you have between the " " it couldn't find. I copied your data and it's the dash it is finding. "-" . If you put an extra space or did not use - then it can't find it. Can you try again as the DAX is the most easy to understand for future applications for you and community.

Please mark as solution if you may having been putting an extra space between "-". Or using _ instead of -. I hope this solution makes sense. Thanks
