Extract field value in Power Query to a new column based on conditions

Hello everyone,

I wish to extract specific values in a column to a new column. The rule is that the values need to start with 75 or 76 and can have maximum of 10 digits. Examples below should make it clear.

@Zabeer,

 

Try this custom column in Power Query:

 

if Text.PositionOf([Input], "75") <> - 1 then
  Text.Middle([Input], Text.PositionOf([Input], "75"), 10)
else if Text.PositionOf([Input], "76") <> - 1 then
  Text.Middle([Input], Text.PositionOf([Input], "76"), 10)
else
  null
