Create a Calculated column with a partial match.

Hi people!


I have the following situation, would anyone be able to give me some help.


I have two tables:

D_CLIENTS = table with the registration of customers.

F_CALLS = table that records the phone calls made.


In the D_CLIENTS table, there are customers who have a registered phone, two others, up to three phones, all within the same column and the numbers are concatenated. There are also customers who do not have a registered phone, which is not a problem.

I need to make a statistic of customers who receive calls and I need to assemble graphs of call amounts per client. For this I thought of creating a calculated column that informs the client of that call.


I created a function in DAX that removes all punctuation, symbols and spaces that have both the customer number and the dialed number.





Now I would need to build a DAX formula that would find the dialed number within the string that is the customer's phone number field and return me the customer's name to populate the table.


For example:

Dialed number: 333

Customer Telephone Number: 123/ 234 /333

As 333 is inside 123/ 234 /333 then it will return the name of the customer to populate the calculated column.


An example of the data is this:





Someone has an idea how make this?
