If and Contains

Hello,

 

I am new to Power BI and I need help creating an additional column using an IF and Contains Statement.

 

I am looking for an IF statement similar to = IF (Table, Name, contains "DEV" then "BOL" other wise "Other".

Try this:

Column = IF(LEFT('Table'[Name],3) = "DEV","BOL","OTHER")

try column

Column = IF(SEARCH("DEV", Table[Name]) > 0, "BOL", "Other")

 

@vivran22 LEFT() function will be actual only for values which starts from BOL
