DAX : If a column contains a certain value then a column contains this value.

Hello BI Community ! 

 

I have a column that contains a title. 

This title consists of "keywords" between brackets.

These first work between brackets refers to a "Category".

 

How can I have a column named "Category" that extract the keyword between bracket in my title ? 

Example : 

SSPowerBI.JPG

What I want, is to put a condition that looks like : 

 

If I have a [ALL] in my title, I want to put in my category to have [All]

If I have a [Stocks] in my title, I want to put in my category to have [Stocks].

 

Can anyone help me please ?

Many thanks ! 

 

Zakaria

Re: DAX : If a column contains a certain value then a column contains this value.

Found the solution here : http://stackoverflow.com/questions/18059607/search-for-distinct-word-dax-formula

 

Here's the DAX code : 

Column = IF(IFERROR(SEARCH("[ALL]";'Backlog Live SM9'[Title]);-1)<> -1;"ALL"; IF(IFERROR(SEARCH("[Stocks]";'Backlog Live SM9'[Title]);-1)<> -1;"Stocks"; IF(IFERROR(SEARCH("[Opti]";'Backlog Live SM9'[Title]);-1)<> -1;"Opti" )))

Re: DAX : If a column contains a certain value then a column contains this value.

If you want to solve this in the Query Editor using M instead of using DAX (personally I like to keep all transformation in Query Editor) it can be done by adding this step as the last step in the advanced editor.

 

#"Add Category" = Table.AddColumn(#"Name of previous step", "Category", 
        each if Text.PositionOf([Title], "]", Occurrence.First) = -1 
                then "" 
                else Text.Start( [Title], Text.PositionOf([Title], "]", Occurrence.First) +1 )
        )
in
    #"Add Category"

 

I created a small example:
