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.

Thanks for additional info.

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.

Please click the accept as solution button. Thanks.
