Look for match in column from list of values in another table

Hi I am trying to find a solution to filtering out people from a list of company names in PowerBi

I was looking to use a match formula , so if any of the names contained LLC , Ltd , Bank , Company , Co at the end of name. Then mark them as match , example of tables


John Smith

Joe Bloggs Ltd

Bill Smith Co

D Evans

Brian Jones Bank


I wanted to match 

Joe Bloggs Ltd

Bill Smith Co

Brian Jones Bank


I have 100,000 rows of data to look at , so was hoping i could put in some match formulas

Hi @Pandadev 


You can add a Custom Column in Power Query editor.


        Text.Split( [Companies], " " ), 
        { "LLC" , "Ltd" , "Bank" , "Company" , "Co" } )


Best Regards,

If this post helps, then please consider Accepting it as the solution.

Please feel free to connect with me.


is it possible to replace the 

{ "LLC" , "Ltd" , "Bank" , "Company" , "Co" } )

with a table which has a list 



Thanks , is it possible to have this so it is not case sensitive as some are typed LLC and some Llc , Ltd , LTD


and is there maybe a seperate column i can include for looking at last letters for match , as If I had Co , and I had somebody called Colin Smith , it would wrongly flag that person as a company , but if it was Colin Smith Co , then I would like to include as it had Co at the end.
