How to create a measure to output the sum, only if it contains certain characters

Hi there, I am stuck on creating a measure based on a column where I have to output the sum of that column whether it includes or not includes certain charachters. 

 

For example say that some of the rows in this column say 12345-NR, but some other rows in that same column just say 12345. 

 

How can I get the sum of the rows in that column that include rows only when it ends in "NR" on a seperate measure, and another seperate measure that sums the same column only when the rows do not contain "NR" at the end.

 

This is the measure (incorrect) i have created when it includes NR:

Non-recurring = CALCULATE(SUM(Backlog[Remain Cdn Ttl Price]), FILTER(Backlog, Backlog[Project ID] <> "NR"))
 
Atleast maybe if that measure does work, how would I use that same measure formula in a new measure and say only when it does not include NR.
 
Thanks!

no NR= CALCULATE(SUM(Backlog[Remain Cdn Ttl Price]), FILTER(Backlog, RIGHT(Backlog[Project ID],2) <> "NR"))
only NR= CALCULATE(SUM(Backlog[Remain Cdn Ttl Price]), FILTER(Backlog, RIGHT(Backlog[Project ID],2) = "NR"))

/if NR is contained anywhere in the string
no NR= CALCULATE(SUM(Backlog[Remain Cdn Ttl Price]), FILTER(Backlog, CONTAINSSTRING('Table'[Column1],"NR") =FALSE()))
only NR= CALCULATE(SUM(Backlog[Remain Cdn Ttl Price]), FILTER(Backlog, CONTAINSSTRING('Table'[Column1],"NR") =TRUE()))

@smpa01 how are you saying "it does not contain"? I thought using "<>" meant contains
