How to remove html tags from some rows.

Hello
I have a report that has web addresses in it. The addresses that go to a SharePoint site are fine, but the ones that point to a document have <Div class="external....... stuff before and after the web address. Everything I have tried (custom columns, extracts etc) have ended up stripping out the rows that are fine. How do I fix just the rows that are problems and leave the rows that are fine?

Hi @RBettinelli ,

 

Maybe you can try formula like below:

ExtractedURL = 
IF (
    CONTAINSSTRING ( 'Table'[URL], "div" ),
    VAR StartPosition =
        FIND ( "href", 'Table'[URL] ) + 6
    VAR EndPosition =
        FIND ( ">", 'Table'[URL], StartPosition )
    RETURN
        MID ( 'Table'[URL], StartPosition, EndPosition - StartPosition-1 ),
    'Table'[URL]
)
