FIND EXACT WORD IN A COLUMN

Hi,

 

I want to know if the Column1 has an "INTERN" word on it. As you can see on the 2nd column (INTERN WORD) all output are returning True because there's an intern word within a word. The 3rd column shows the correct output which returns true if there's a separate word "Intern".

Hi @nicomathers 

plrase try

INTERN WORD =
VAR String =
SUBSTITUTE ( SUBSTITUTE ( 'Table'[Column1], "(", "" ), ")", "" )
VAR Items =
SUBSTITUTE ( String, " ", "|" )
VAR Length =
COALESCE ( PATHLENGTH ( Items ), 1 )
VAR T1 =
GENERATESERIES ( 1, Length, 1 )
VAR T2 =
SELECTCOLUMNS ( T1, "@Item", PATHITEM ( Items, [Value] ) )
RETURN
NOT ISEMPTY ( FILTER ( T2, [@Item] = "Intern" ) )

This works. Thanks, Mate!
