Hi @dotnet,

Based on my test, you could split your column in query editor or with max:

In query editor:

Use the Split Column function:

If you want to use the dax, you could try:

Column = LEFT('Table1'[Time],20)

Just split the column by a delimiter?

@dotnet you could use right or left to get rid of characters if you know the length of it.

Didn't get it, what is right or left. Are you talking about splitting them?
