Measure to Extract specific characters from a String

I have a field with below values. 

 

SABBANK\O45678

SABBANK\345670

INDBANK\234090

SBIBANK\098765

 

I need to create a measure to give the below values present after "\". I need only measure and not a calculated column becausre the source is a live Power BI dataset connectivity.

 

O45678

345670

234090

098765

 

Please help.

@Ramees_123 I think:

Measure = 
  VAR __String = MAX('Table'[Column])
  VAR __Slash = SEARCH("\",__String)
RETURN
  MID(__String,__Slash+1,LEN(__String)-__Slash)

Try this measure:

New Value = 
Var _NoCh = search("\",FIRSTNONBLANK('Table'[Value],""))
Var _TEXT = FIRSTNONBLANK('Table'[Value],"")
return
right(_TEXT,LEN(_TEXT)-_NoCh)

The output will be as below:

I have the following base column source (actions)

- The theme is in different positions of the text and can have from 5 to 100 characters but if it has a similarity the dates are inside delimiter "( " ")" sometimes it is stuck to the text and sometimes not

How can I solve it?
