@ThoSch then you can use the last parameter of FIND function - NotFoundValue and set it to 1. If you want blank, when there is no @ in email. If you want the text, then insert IF function as well.

Hi @ThoSch. Subtracting by 1 should be after FIND function. DAX should be as:

 

Domain1 = LEFT(Tabelle1[Column1];FIND("@";Tabelle1[Column1])-1)

Regards.
