Populate a column if another column contains information

Hi, basically all I need is for a new column to check if an existing column contains either text or number and it if does it says Yes and if it doesn't it says no. 

 

Tried to google this but cannot get anything that matches what I need.

 

Example below:

 

InformationAnswer
 No
FYes
2Yes
 No
YYes
AYes
4Yes
 No
GYes

In the power query editor you can add a conditional column.
