Counting number of values in a column

Hi all 

Is there a way of counting the number of values in a column in Power BI (see screen shot below)

I also have this column, comma separated.

 

For instance 10 70 = 2

Create a Custom Column and add this formula:

List.Count(Text.PositionOf([Home Team Goal Minute],",",Occurrence.All )) + 1

 

Your screenshot shows that it is separated by a space and not a comma, if that's the case then this should work:

 

List.Count(Text.PositionOf([Home Team Goal Minute]," ",Occurrence.All )) + 1

Thanks @hannibalmads I really need to get more into Custom columns, it's so powerful yet I've never really explored it properly. Any good resources you could recommend? Thanks again

Great to hear. Power Query and the M language is totally underappreciated (in my opinion) in terms of documentation as well as usage, but this book is my bible
