Hi @Anonymous

 

Try adding this step in Query Editor

 

It works with your sample data

 

= Table.SelectRows(#"Changed Type", each Text.Select([Name],List.Transform({1..126}, each Character.FromNumber(_)))="")

 

See the attached file

Thank you so much @Zubair_Muhammad it worked.

However, i didnt get this trasform List.Transform({1..126) that how it works?. if possible, pls explain.

Thank you again for swift response and help 🙂

@AnonymousThis function results in a list of majority of characters that we can type from the keyboard

 

List.Transform({1..126}, each Character.FromNumber(_))

 

Create a blank query and cope paste above code you will get
