Hi @Ali123
I know it might be much more complex but based on this sample data please use https://www.dropbox.com/t/HzAd6VMSMQVVBBcC

``````Salary New =
VAR Salary = Salaries[Salary]
VAR Length = LEN ( Salary )
VAR Number = MID ( Salary, 2, Length - 2 )
RETURN
SWITCH (
TRUE ( ),
CONTAINSSTRING ( Salary, "M" ), 1000000 * Number,
CONTAINSSTRING ( Salary, "B" ), 1000000000 * Number
)``````
