Make Text.Replace Case Insensitive

I want to replace any instance of Ltd, whether it's ltd or LTD or Ltd

 

I did a simple right click, replace text and have been experimenting with the comparer.orignalignorecase function but unable to determine where to put it:

 

Here's my formula:

= Table.ReplaceValue(#"Renamed Columns","LTD","",Replacer.ReplaceText,{"Supplier (cleansed)"})

 

Can anyone help?

= Text.Combine(List.RemoveMatchingItems(Text.Split([#"Supplier (cleansed)"]," "),{"ltd"},Comparer.OrdinalIgnoreCase)," ")

Hi, @doubleclick 

List.ReplaceMatchitems is a function manipulate list values.

And you can place the comparer.orignalignorecase function as below:

 

= Table.AddColumn(#"Renamed Columns", "Custom", each Text.Combine(List.ReplaceMatchingItems({[#"Supplier (cleansed)"]},{{"ltd","Ltd"}},Comparer.OrdinalIgnoreCase)))

= Table.ReplaceValue(#"Renamed Columns", null, null, (x,y,z) => Text.Replace(Text.Upper(x),"LTD",""), {"Supplier (cleansed)"})

Thanks to the great efforts by MS engineers to simplify syntax of DAX! Most beginners are SUCCESSFULLY MISLED to think that they could easily master DAX; but it turns out that the intricacy of the most frequently used RANKX() is still way beyond their comprehension!

DAX is simple, but NOT EASY!

this is only one variation?

i thought one of you da geniuses could do this easy
