Power BI / DAX: Add a calculated column with the Code:

 

CalculatedColumn := LEFT([Customer/Vendor], 3)

 

PowerQuery:

 

nextStep = Table.AddColumn(previousStep, "newColumn", each Text.Start([#"Customer/Vendor"], 3), type text)

Hi,

In the Query Editor, you may also try the "Column from Example" feature.

Hi @admin11 

As you are in Power query use Text.Start function in the new custom column.

Ref - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerquery-m/text-start

Thanks
