## Calculating number for a specific string length

I have a table with a column SSCC. I need to calculate potential pallet numbers which could be 10 up to 13 digits long as well as could be seperated by a comma or space.  Ideally the calculation would be a calculated column.

In below example Prod 1 would have 3 pallets, and prod 2 would have 5 pallets. Any suggestions ?

Sure here is the issue.

A table we use has column names SSCC which stands for a pallet number. A single row might have multiple pallet numbers separated by comma or by space, and pallet numbers could be from 10 to 13 digits long.

The below example show product 1 and 2. We can see that product 1 is made up of 3 pallets and product 2 is made of 5 pallets. What is worth nothing is that the pallets are in one cell are sometimes separated by comma and sometimes by space and are 10-13 digits long.

The output I'd like to get is to put column products in a table and the calculated column with the count of pallets.

Try this ...

In Power Query

Replace all spaces with a comma in the pallet column. This will make all delimiters commas

Then in the Transform menu use the Split column by delimiter (comma) into rows.
