How to use CONTAINSTRING inside SWITCH?

Hello everybody, how are you?

 

I need your help urgently for a problem I'm having.

 

I have a column with different values, but with a specific string that repeats in more than one row.

 

What do I need to do?

 

I need to categorize these specific strings into 3 different categories, which are the regions that each location equals.

 

I am trying to use SWITCH with CONTAINSSTRING, because I need it to return the text I want in the calculated column if it finds the text I am looking for.

 

But it is not working. Can anyone help me and tell me where I am going wrong, or any alternative way for me to get what I want?

Hi  @matheus_peppers ,

Here are the steps you can follow:

1. Create calculated column.

Column =
SWITCH(
    TRUE(),
CONTAINSSTRING('Table'[Anuncio],"Taubate")=TRUE(),"Taubate",
CONTAINSSTRING('Table'[Anuncio],"Canas")=TRUE(),"Canas")

2. Result:

@matheus_peppers , You should use Switch (True(),

and then you can check for true in each expression
