You can try the following function to write measure.

``````Measure1 = LEFT ( MAX('Table'[Location]), 3 ) = "SIE"
&& (
CONTAINSSTRING ( MAX('Table'[Location]), "RUI" )
|| CONTAINSSTRING ( MAX('Table'[Location]), "KLT" )
|| CONTAINSSTRING ( MAX('Table'[Location]), "AKL" )
)
``````
``````Measure2 =
LEFT ( MAX ( 'Table'[Location] ), 3 ) = "SIE"
&& RIGHT ( MAX ( 'Table'[Location] ), 3 ) = "SIE"
&& (
CONTAINSSTRING ( MAX ( 'Table'[Location] ), "RUI" )
|| CONTAINSSTRING ( MAX ( 'Table'[Location] ), "KLT" )
|| CONTAINSSTRING ( MAX ( 'Table'[Location] ), "AKL" )
)
``````

You can do this with LEFT and CONTAINSSTRING.

``````LEFT ( Table1[Location], 3 ) = "SIE"
&& (
CONTAINSSTRING ( Table1[Location], "RUI" )
|| CONTAINSSTRING ( Table1[Location], "KLT" )
|| CONTAINSSTRING ( Table1[Location], "AKL" )
)``````

Something along the lines of a Custom Column in Power Query like

`if Text.StartsWith([Location],"SIE") and (Text.Contains([Location],"RUI") or Text.Contains([Location],"KLT") or Text.Contains([Location],"AKL")) then trueelse false`

Hi @gauravnarchal, are you ok with this being in Power Query, not DAX?
