Split data field from Service Now

Hi,

from service now I get a date in the column task:latable_busienss_duration in the following format: "10 days 3 hous 10 minutes", I would like to split this column so that I will have a column with only days, a column with only hours and a column with only minutes.

here is a screenshot of the data:

Can you provide me some hint?

 

Thank you

Kind regards

Marta

Thanks to the great efforts by MS engineers to simplify syntax of DAX! Most beginners are SUCCESSFULLY MISLED to think that they could easily master DAX; but it turns out that the intricacy of the most frequently used RANKX() is still way beyond their comprehension!

DAX is simple, but NOT EASY!
