Separate String and Numbers in the same column but diff rows

Just started learning Power BI

 

I have a column where the values got mixed in with the name instead of just SKU numbers. How do I separate the value of this column to 2 new ones . So basically the numerics and the strings(alphabet) will be in a new column same row

Current Table 

KeyProduct SKU
Mom8723927
Dad7483649

Daughter

Jane Doe

SonJohn Doe
Cousin23749

 

 

Expected results

KeyProduct SKU revisedName
Mom8723927 
Dad7483649 
Daughter Jane Doe
Son John Doe
Cousin23749

@Anonymous you can add two new columns as per below DAX Expression:

 

Product SKU Revised = IFERROR(VALUE( 'Table'[Product SKU] ),BLANK())

Name = IF( ISERROR(VALUE('Table'[Product SKU])), 'Table'[Product SKU] )

Where/How do you apply this DAX expression?

I am not in that topic yet

Hi @Anonymous ,
