I'm trying to create a calculated column in one of my tables that says:
IF( row CONTAINS "A", put "A", otherwise put "B")
The problem is I can't figure out what the contains function is in DAX, and I've looked everywhere. Can anyone help me out?
Thanks in advance.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The easiest way to do this would be to do the column in the query rather than the resulting data model table. Hit the Add Custom Column there and the code would be
if Text.Contains([ColumnName], "A") then "A" else "B"
If you want to do it in DAX it's a bit more messy. My best idea is to search for the position of the text you want to find, and check for that to return an error when the text is missing.
CustomColumn = IF( ISERROR( SEARCH("A", TableName[ColumnName]) ), "A", "B" )
I am in the same situation, I only have 2 tables in my model
In my first table I have employee names
in my second table I also have employee names plus more information I need from them
I need to compare if names in column 1 table 1 are in table 2
I have used:
Use Fuzzy matching in the Query Editor.
Did you find a solution to this? I am currently working on something similar, I need to search for "furniture" in a specific column as there can be different types of furniture in that column but I want to return anything that contains "furniture". I did this and it works....
Type = if(search("*furniture*", Data[Products], 1, 0) = 1, "Furniture", "Other")
Share some data and show the expected result.
Thanks for your reply.
I want to search in Product Code for specific text (as there are some entries with double data e.g. TARF2/TARF2L) and return the associated product category.
The LOOKUPVALUE() function should help.
i´m trying to replace a word in a range of text, for example:
Row1: AJUSTE MINAM
Row2: AJUSTE KC
Row3: AJUSTE OSINER
New Column: AJUSTE
As i say, i wanna replace a range of text by a word: "AJUSTE"
if you have an idea i´ll be very grateful
Thank a lot
I know this is quite old, but this is the closest thread I came to solving what I think is the same need I had, but the proposed solutipms don't solve it. My use case - I have Table A, which has column X, and Table B, which has columns Y and Z. I want to do a fuzzy match on 'Table A'[X] against 'Table B'[Y] and return the value in 'Table B'[Z], so basically a LOOKUPVALUE using search.
In my example, Table A is called "Merged NPA5 and JIRA Query" and column X is "NPAID". Table B is called "FakeJira" and columns Y and Z are, respectively, "External Ticket Id" and "Value To Return". So it looks like this:
Merged NPA5 and JIRA Query:
And this is the result I wanted, where it can find a reference within External Ticket ID, but also handle blanks and duplicates, so gets this as a result:
The only thing now is to sort in the case where there's a duplicate, but that'll be trivial based on some other data.
Anyway, hope this helps - I think this is what the original requestor might have been wanting to do.
Hi, I have the same problem. I needed to classify these texts as "recordable" if not "non recordable"...
these are recordable
Medical treatment beyond first aid
Restricted work case
my syntax goes like this.
Recordable Injuries IF(Injuriesver2[Severity]="Fatality",IF(Injuriesver2[Severity]="Irreversible",IF(Injuriesver2[Severity]="Lost time",IF(Injuriesver2[Severity]="Medical treatment beyond first aid",IF(Injuriesver2[Severity]="Restricted work case","Recordable","Non-recordable")))))
You ever finish this project? Im working a new PBI graphic for some HSE items and would be interested to see where you ended up
Yes, I did complete this one... I used these DAX coming from the comments here....
@PHEstaciMa1 based on your details , i have framed a small table with One Column as Severity and other is a calculated Column 'Category' and used below formula to get desired output.
Prepare a simple 2 column table with Text entries in the first column and Category in a second column. The second column should have Recordable and Non-recordable. Thereafter, build a relationship from the text column of your base data to the text column of thsi new 2 column dataset. Write the =RELATED('Table2'[Category]) calculated column formula to fetch data from the Category column to Table1.
Hope this helps.
