Hi,

 

in power query you can create a custom column with the formula: 

 

if Text.StartsWith([Column1],"*") then "Open" else "Closed"

 

full m code: 

 

#"Added Custom" = Table.AddColumn(#"Changed Type", "Custom", each if Text.StartsWith([Column1],"*") then "Open" else "Closed")

 

If I answered your question, please mark my post as solution, Appreciate your Kudos 👍

Additionally in DAX calculated column:

 


Column = if(left('Table (13)'[Column1],1)="*","Open","Closed")
