Custom column: Add text to data for different format

Hello,

 

I have 2 variables [Latitude] and [Longitude], and I would like to make a custom column which outputs in the following format: N[Latitude],E[Longitude] with "N" + "," + "E" being text.

 

Thank you in advance,

 

Omar

Hi OmarTalk2IoT,

 

The first solution is that you can simply use "&" symbol to concatenate thses columns and symbols in either DAX or Power Query as below:

 

Result = "N" & [Latitude] & "," & "E" & [Longitude]

 

Also, the second solution is that you can create a calculate column using DAX below:

 

Result =
CONCATENATE (
    "N",
    CONCATENATE (
        [Latitude],
        CONCATENATE ( ",", CONCATENATE ( "E", [Longitude] ) )
    )
)
