Dax Statement Help - Grouping codes by If statements

In my data set, I have a column of thousands of unique codes that are about 15 characters in length (ex. 17.26AZ85894) .  I am trying to find a solution to group them to easily sort the data.  I have made a new column to show just the first 5 characters (Stem+2 = 17.26).  From the Stem +2, I made a new column, Componenet Type.  However there is one code with in Stem +2, 17.26, that I need to exlcude from the "Bulk Equipment" group.

 

Example of If statement:  Component Type = IF( Metric Table [Stem +2] = "17.26"  && Except(Stem +5 = "17.264YZ" , "Bulk Equipment", "null")

 

Mainly, I want to exclude one code from my all encompassing 17.26 if statement.

 

Please let me know if this is unclear and I will try to better explain my problem.

 

Thank you in advance!

Unless I'm missing something you can use not equal

 

from the original code  

IF( Left(Metric Table [Code],5) = "17.26"  && Left(Metric Table [Code],8) <> "17.264YZ" , "Bulk Equipment", "null") 

or using 2 columns

 

 

 IF( Metric Table [Stem +2] = "17.26"  && Metric Table [Stem +5] <> "17.264YZ" , "Bulk Equipment", "null")

You can also do similar functions in M (Query Editor)

 

Depending on what your data looks like you may be better creating a mapping table and joining the code or a sub part of the code to the mapping table.

 

For smaller grouping exerecises try the group banding feature. Right click on a column and select New Group.
