Text contains text or numer in dax

Hello,
I need help, I have a column that contains numbers and text, it is formatted as text, I need to check in dax if each value of the column is a number or a text.
I tried creating a calculated column but when it transforms it freezes because it gives an error on the type.

do you know a function that does this?

Hello, if you do not want to do this in PQ, I would create a calculated column as follows:

 

Text vs Numeric =
SWITCH (
TRUE (),
ISERROR ( VALUE ( SampleData[Column Name] ) ), "Text",
"Numeric"
)

Measure = IF(ISERROR(INT(MAX('Table'[name]))),"String","Integer")
