Removing Open and Close Parenthesis in Text

Hi,

 

I'm trying to remove both open " ( " and close " ) " parenthesis in a word containing both of them.

 

Example:

(New Message)

 

I want it to be:

New Message

 

I cannot seem to find the correct DAX formula to remove both the open and close parenthesis.

 

Appreciate if you can help me.

 

Thanks!

 

Best regards,

Mark

Place this into a new column and change the TableName & ColumnName to suit

 

Remove Parenthesis = SUBSTITUTE (
SUBSTITUTE ( 'TableName'[Column Name], "(", "" ),
")",
"")
